The Tours - Language School
A classic old power pop/punk/new wave/whatever tune today. The Tours were from Poole, England and despite signing to Virgin in a 6 album deal, unfortunately only released a couple of singles (though in 2010 Cherry Red put out a compilation album called Album Of The Year... (That Never Was) ). This, their first single, was released in 1979 and was, according to Cherry Red, played by John Peel on 50 consecutive nights, he declared it his 2nd favourite 45 of all time after Teenage Kicks. It's Called Language School.....
