The Nectarine No. 9

I believe this is one of many records that I purchased at Amoeba Records on Telegraph whilst attending UC Berkeley. I would dig through the 7"s several times a week, and I usually made a point to drive in on Sunday evenings because that seemed to be the time that they put new records in the "recent arrivals" bin. I hadn't heard of this band but I had heard of Postcard Records, so for $1.95 I decided to take a chance. I thought the label was defunct but who was I to argue with the physical evidence I held in my hands?

I love this record. I forgot how much I love this record, it had been some years since I listened to it. Over the years I have found that I listen to 7"s less and less as it is tedious to keep getting up and flip over records. Hence, this project.

I loved this record so much that I went and out purchased other records by this band. I did not love them, and that is why they are not included in this post. Perhaps they flew too close to the sun, who knows.

Ladies and Gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, a single by The Nectarine No. 9.
