Elcka - Pleasure
Elcka at first glance seem like another bloody Britpop haircut band, a slightly unluckier Menswear or something. In some respects they are, but they had a knack of knocking out a few unheard semi-classics in the short time they were around. Pleasure was supposed to be the comeback single in '99, but was never properly released. Thankfully plenty of promos did the rounds and we can glimpse of what might be been. Yob fop chant of EASY! EASY! EASY! should have thrown this into the upper regions of the charts and the lower regions of your pants. It's almost disco at times and is one of the great lost songs of the late 90's. Alas, the curse of the late 90's indie hand takes hold of one of the b-sides, as a very bad remix of the single threatens to give your ears a dose of audio VD.
Goodbye 2008, it's been a bloody fantastic year. In the new year I shall continue to promise things I never get around to actually putting up and try very hard not to just post obscure French synth pop all the time.
Have a good one!
