Old Loves: Catching up with ex-Creation artists

The old flames always seem to resurface, and hopefully they still sound good, or at least interesting. Here are a couple of related releases that may interest those of you who, like me, have a very fond place in your heart for Creation Records...and yes, they still sound good.

Mr. Peter Astor (The Loft, The Weather Prophets) released his latest solo album sometime within the last year, and I just found out about it. Songbox is available on the Second Language label. Here's the video for "Dead Trumpets," directed by none other than Gina Birch of the Raincoats! Keep up with Pete on Facebook. And check out Pete's all time top 10 over at Louder Than War.

The second of these brings together two artists from two different Creation bands, Pete Fij from Adorable (whose catalog seems to be completely out of print - not even available digitally), and Terry Bickers from the House of Love. They're giving away their new track, "I Don't Give A Shit About You," via their Soundcloud page. Check it out below...that Bickers guitar sound is unmistakeable. You can also get some more info here, and like them on Facebook. Its great to see these guys back in action!
