The sound of it! It was amazingly trebly. I never got over how wonderfully sharp it was, and how it seemed that two-thirds of the sound was just his guitar. You could hear the drums and you could hear the bass, but most of the sound was this beautifully simple tubey guitar sound, in clanging rolling, perfectly formed waves.
Remarkably, there are some people still without a copy of his 1994 classic, Sugar Mouth, scientifically proven to be the second best album released by Flying Nun. The recent CD reissue with extra tracks is an essential purchase if you’re one of those people without it (I bought it and I already have the vinyl – the extra tracks themselves are that good).
Among the Kilgour discography are 5 lathe cut 7”s. This one, featuring I Caught You Lookin and Way Down Here, was recorded at home in early 97, and pressed in a run of 75 copies.
