The Bodines

This band is another addition to Ian Broudie's resume of bands he produced. The Bodines were one of the first jangly-pop bands emerged from the C86 era. Their first single was released under Creation, while one of my all-time favorite indie pop album, Played, was released under Magnet. That particular album is so hard to find and if in case you do find it, I guarantee it won't be cheap. Even the japanese re-release is so hard to find and quite expensive too (it has several bonus tracks though). While I'm still in search of this treasure, let me share you my Bodines 12" collection for the meantime.
