Tennis Shoes

I recently spent a day in London wandering around in the rain going to as many record shops as I could find. I purchased quite a few records, some by bands I had heard of and many by bands I had not.

There were some rules governing which records I could buy and which I couldn't. To buy a record I had to be reasonably sure I would post it here at some point, and it had to be less than £10 (preferably closer to 5). If I hadn't heard of the band it had to look cool (obviously) and not be on a major label.

I got some oddballs, this not being the weirdest of the bunch. I love that their band is called Tennis Shoes and there are 9(!) members. I'm sure they needed every single one of the six people who are credited with vocals (for 3 of them it is their sole credit).

It says on the cover that there is a "free zoetrope inside" but as mine didn't contain one I concluded that they had intended that to be the title of the record.

This record is really fun to listen to, I am currently doing the medium wave (whatever that means).

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Tennis Shoes.
