Caught by the River

The Pale Fountains, caught by the river…

9th November 2007

wanted to use these pics to accompany Teds piece, “The Magical World Of…” but only just found them.

I guess they are from their first press shoot, from, 1982. They really were a cool band. Early days, musically, it was via Love’s take on Bacharach, a bit of Bossa and lyrics from the lineage of the English “kitchen sink” writers. The look, copped straight from a French, existential art film.

This album of their earliest material is worth a listen;
