Jennifer Wants....

From the same Record Mirror single that yesterday's track came from comes toady's offering from Raymonde. Contemporaries of The Smiths and similar in both sound and style, there appeared to be a mutual appreciation society between the two bands. One went on to become one of the the best and most important bands ever whilst Raymonde have sadly faded into obscurity. As far as I know they only released the one album which is currently unavailable.

Today's track was recorded exclusively for Record Mirror and wears it's Smiths influence very proudly on it's sleeve.

Raymonde - Jennifer Wants


  1. I've gtot their lp babelogue? (I think thats the name somewhere)I think they were one of those bands that

    a) suffered by the constant smiths comparisons
    b) record paper wars where one paper champions a band the others by definition slag them off

    the lp is patchy but has some great tunes on that meant it shouldnt have got lost in a small pocket of music history

  2. I've got a lot of their stuff, I'm trying to make a name for myself as a musician so I can bring some more attention to James Maker's music
