The Raw Herbs video
The Raw Herbs - was there a band who better combined country music's heartbreak with indiepop's introspection (clue: no)?
Was there a band more unjustifiably overlooked (probably, but, for fuck's sake, this lot really did deserve front pages and number one hits)?
Should there be a career-spanning compilation(fuck yeah! The unreleased stuff is amazing, too)?
Do you want to see the video for Don't Bury Me Yet? I know Ally does ("I hope there's some film somewhere because you really have to see Derek's hips wiggle as he sings").
Does singer Derek Parker look like the young Edwyn Collins (uncannily so, yes)?
Andrew Wake, head honcho of that finest of (sadly now defunct) record labels, Medium Cool, sent over a link to the Don't Bury Me Yet video. You know what to do.
