Dan Fathom Down, the dirty Pocketbook, unleashes his secret (well, not that secret obviously) Hot Booth identity on the world by the medium of a bright blue tape cassette packaged in a very mucky sleeve (by one James Unsworth, here). There were 50 copies of this, I managed (I’m never usually this lucky) to snaffle one. This cassingle kind of epitomises to me something utterly super right on and necessary. There are four songs, one of which is a Ramones cover (‘Swallow My Pride’ which can also be heard on the ‘No more of your fairy stories: an indiepop tribute to RAMONES’ compilation that came out last year). ‘Moe Tucker’ is a number one record on the hit parade in some perfect parallel dimension world we can only dream of.
Will there be anything from Hot Booth ever again? Probably not, which is maybe the point. – A Fog Of Ideas Blog
