Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 314


Shellac - The Bird is the Most Popular Finger 7'' (Drag City, 1994)

This show featured The Admiral, a track by Shellac, taken from their 1994 Drag City 7'', The Bird is the Most Popular Finger. This is an instrumental version of the track which appears on the band's first album, At Action Park. The b-side is XVI, which is early working of the At Action Park track Pull the Cup. This is a really beautiful 7'' sleeve, the back features a line drawing of the band's loft rehersal space with a number allocated to each item. A black and white photograph of the same loft space then slots in over the line drawing. The 7'' came accompanied by an insert with a number key.
