Pure Morning is a Mexican tweegaze / dreampop / shoegaze five-piece from Sinaloa with an excellent debut album ‘The Broadcasting Department Of Philadelphia’ to their name on the Mexican label Emma’s House, incidentally right the song title of The Field Mice song, the 7inch with the blue penguins to be clear.
And it’s still a re-interpretation of The Field Mice classic “Sensitive”, the band’s contribution to the beautiful compilation/tribute album “Popkiss, TBTCI meets Sarah Recs.” by the mighty Brazilian blog/label The Blog That Celebrates Itself Records.
I was lucky enough to see two memorable gigs by the South Londoners five-piece The Field Mice at the end of the 80’s, the first at the Gibus in Paris and the second one at the Islington Powerhaus, a band that was an integral part of that incredible adventure, started in 1987, by the proudly DIY Bristol-based Sarah Records, one of the UK’s most underrated label, with a catalogue and a signature sound founded mainly upon highly-collectable and artistically gorgeous limited edition 7” singles from seminal and talented new bands like The Sea Urchins, The Wake, Even As We Speak, Heavenly, Blueboy, Another Sunny Day, Brighter, St Christopher, the still alive and kicking Secret Shine, and many more.
It’s more than welcome this heartfelt tribute by the TBTCI that shows the talent of a bunch of contemporary new bands in an almost perfect re-interpretation of so many label classics.
Pure Morning cover of The Field Mice 1989‘s 7″inch does not differ substantially from the original with its ageless and melancholic jangle guitar sound, hazy and dreamy psychedelic, with noisy distorted outbreaks and slightly wobbly hushed vocals to create sheer ear magic.
Bravi! Pure Morning, it’s finally time for their long-awaited follow-up hopefully, and bravo! and huge respect to Renato Malizia for relentlessly discovering exciting new bands and keeping the flame of those glorious days alive.
