All Mapped Out

The Departure

2nd August 2004 (single), 13th June 2005 (LP)🇬🇧

Another song from the 2004 “Golden Era”. This one is heavily influenced by the “New Romantic” movement of the late 70s, early 80s.


Interstate 5

The Wedding Present

15th November 2004 (single), 14th February 2005 (LP)🇬🇧 🇺🇸

Another one from the golden year of 2004, this is another of my all-time favourites. The Wedding Present at this point wasn’t a reformed original line-up, but a renamed and refocussed version of Cinerama.


Thru The Glass

Thirteen Senses

1st March 2004 (single), 27th September 2004 (LP)🇬🇧

The standout years in my annual best-of-year compilations are 2004 and 2016. The mix for the former kicked off with this track from Cornwall’s Thirteen Senses.
