King Swamp - Blown Away

A bunch of us in sixth form really got into a fairly unknown band called 'King Swamp'. The Common Room stereo was continually hi-jacked by us anyway and King Swamp got probably more than it's fair share for a while. They were fantastic live but sadly didn't make it past their second album.

I found the first, self-titled, King Swamp album on vinyl in the late 90's (I only ever had it on cassette and lost it many years ago) and found a copy on CD yesterday which should be winging its way to me in the next week or two.

Listening to the blow track, Blown Away, reminds me slightly of INXS - who were also pretty popular in our sixth form and drinking circles at the time.

Anyway, I just found a King Swamp video on Youtube for the first time. It's not a great quality recording having been taken from the TV back in 1989 I believe. But it gives you an idea of what they were like. Now all I have to do is find some Ugle As Sin and InAura videos...
