THE POETS - NOW WE'RE THRU
Today's entry is a phenomenal piece if moody British beat, and in fact the only 45 issued in the US by this group that was managed and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham (most famous as the manager/producer of the Rolling Stones). With its' chiming 12 string guitar, huge reverb drone, and punky vocals, its almost a precursor to the Velvet Underground. The Poets were from Glasgow, Scotland, released a few more singles that sank without a trace and sadly broke up before recording an album.
