Misty’s new adventure

Just came across a couple of new-ish tracks from one of my favourite bands of all time, Misty’s Big Adventure and (as ever) they’re well worth a listen. There’s the self penned parping ska of ‘Someone at the Window’ and a Pipettes-ish cover of ‘Dumb Head’ by a ‘60’s singer called Ginny Arnell. ‘Dumb Head’s’ the first non Gareth lead vocal (to my knowledge) that the band’s ever done and, far from being a curiosity, it’s a belter. Now, how about a 7inch single release for that authentic girl group experience?

PS: For the uninitiated amongst you Misty’s Big Adventure are a Birmingham band who combine the wit and wonder of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band with a little ska, some classic pop, a healthy dose of cynicism about the modern world we all find ourselves stuck in and…oh hell, just watch the video (from 2006...old skool stylee) and you'll see what I mean.
