I was listening to the new record by FOR PETE'S SAKE recently. I still haven't ordered one as the super cool clear blue colour sold out, and after seeing that I don't really want any of the other colours. But anyway, when I bought the Shook Ones LP a couple of weeks ago, I also made some offers on stuff from the same seller. One of the records was this Sportswear 'Building, Dwelling, Thinking' LP:
Sportswear were a band out of Norway in the 90s that came about at the same time as a lot of other youth crew revival bands. They had a couple of 7"s released by Crucial Response Records, and this LP came out on Supersoul & Good Life. I think there were three colours of vinyl, and this purple colour was probably the most common.
Funnily enough, I had never heard this LP until now. It came out in 1999. I guess it just never really stood out before as something I needed to listen to. I was always put off by the band name. But damn, this is good stuff.
