This post is the very pinnacle of missing the boat. Mother Of Pearl was originally released nearly 40 years ago back in 1985, and even though it was reissued last year, that was in April, which I also missed. Finger. On. The. Pulse. Also: I’d never even heard of Scribble before. Thankfully what awaits you at the end of this long list of abject failures is an absolutely brilliant eight minute dream pop epic that sounds like it could have been made yesterday, and that calls to mind Talking Heads, Cocteau Twins and many more celebrated 80s pioneers.
