Shel Talmy strikes again!

They had an awesome sound, horribly overlooked.

I wonder how many people discovered them through Rushmore...

I knew nothing about them, until I saw an old Brit 7" for $10 once, and saw it was produced by Talmy (Who, Kinks). I figured, cool name and producer, worth a shot. Holy crap it felt good hearing them for the first time.

I should imagine a few heard via 'Rushmore', the use of 'Making Time'during opening minutes is inspired, as is the soundtrack in general. Proabably the most consistent thing about Anderson's films has been his great soundtracks.

However many in UK would have been turned onto The Creation by Creation Records boss Alan McGee who literally championed them in every interview and named his record label after them. Sadly I think Creation records exposure in North America was far far less than here in UK and Europe, which is a shame as they put out some great records for a time.
