38. THE STAIRS - 'Weed Bus' EP (Go Discs GODCD 63) 1991
Here's a first for 'Flower Bomb Songs'. The first ever YouTube video uploaded to my blogspot. Hope you all dig it.
Back in 1991 there wasn't a lot of new bands to listen to in England. However, a four piece Liverpudlian set were. Perhaps The Stairs were our best kept secret, not that 'Weed Bus' (a song about smoking pot) would ever get played on the radio!
This 4 song CD single is now very rare and sought after. All tracks are worth a listen. My favourite is probably the jangly 'Flying Machine'...
The Stairs only ever recorded in MONO and on this promo video they sound like The Rolling Stones but look like The Chocolate Watch Band. A mix that couldn't possibly fail...but somehow it did.
