Well, this is it (as i’m sure I recall someone else saying not too long ago…), after 6 albums, 2 split LP’s, 4 7′”s and split 7″s and even a 3″CD (and that’s just my own collection, there are many more cassettes and CD’s I don’t have!), it seems that my beloved Pocahaunted have finally called it a day. They had a brief hiatus when one of them temporarily moved to New York, but with the stratospheric success of Bethany’s Best Coast and various other goings on, Pocahaunted are officially no more.
This 7″ single is their final swansong and apparently the first and only time they made it into a “proper” recording studio. Both cuts are great (in my opinion) but seem some way removed from the hypnotic peyote-trance-inducing psychedelia of old. And both tracks definitely point the way for the more lyricised dream pop of Best Coast.
Anyway, at least it will shut me up talking about them now! I’m very aware that they are an acquired taste and won’t be the least put out by no comments at all, but I felt I at least owed them a send off after the many many hours of pleasure they have given me over the last 5 years.
So long ladies..and thanks for the memories!
