The Flaming Stars – Ten Feet Tall (1996)

An irresistible companion piece to yesterday’s epic 96 Tears by ? and the Mysterians.

Recorded 20 years later, “Ten Feet Tall” is driven by a similarly relentless and catchy organ lead.

The Flaming Stars were another band whose pathway to some form of recognition was via the genius of the John Peel Show for whom they recorded six sessions. Among their members, the singer was ex-Gallon Drunk drummer Max Décharné.

I bought the 7 inch single of this as soon as it came out and, later, it was one of the tracks on the Flaming Stars’ singles compilation Bring Me The Rest of Alfredo Garcia – one of the finest album titles in the history of popular music.

Over to you boys. The track and then the original promo video with slightly dodgy sound levels.
