Blind Mr. Jones – ‘Tatooine’


Saint Marie Records is celebrating the 20th Anniversary release of Blind Mr. Jones‘ classic album ‘Tatooine’ (on CD and Vinyl). This is the first time the album has been available on wax, now fully remastered with sexy artwork! The British shoegazers drew comparisons to Ride and Slowdive at the time, one of their defining features was the inclusion of a flutist. As Last fm puts it, they were “jokingly referred to as the Jethro Tull of shoegazing for their frequent use of flute”. Jump into the full LP stream below and hit up Saint Marie for a copy!
