shop assistants - "it's up to you" (from the nme c86 compilation--does anyone know if it was ever collected elsewhere?)

the shop assistants were a part of the legendary 53rd & 3rd record roster that included acts like talulah gosh, bmx bandits, the vaselines, and beat happening. now, w/ that bit of context ...

i'm really tired tonight, and this song sounds like a good place to pass an evening. it twinkles and soothes, while singer alex taylor sings in hushed tones, real close to your ear, scratching your head as you drift to sleep.

now, if you excuse me, i have a date w/ the repeat button, and a reservation in dreamland.
