Crash Into June - From Blind to Blue - 1999

Debut album from Memphis quartet. Nine years in the oven, carefully sauteed with The Posies and Candyskins among others. Crash Into June (they take their name from a Game Theory song) aren't shy about their influences. In fact, they lay their cards on the table from the first track. Pete Ham is, quite simply, a homage to the man who made Badfinger click. From there they check a host of Beatles-inspired luminaries, including Teenage Fanclub (on the chunky Aurora Borealis), Matthew Sweet and The Connells, to name but a few. Along the way they throw out an impressive selection of hooklines, while singer Dave Norris lets himself run a little hoarse in the best John Lennon tradition when he needs to. With every song carefully honed for instant recall, From Blind To Blue makes for a highly impressive debut - let's hope it's not another virtual decade before the follow-up. - Dave Henderson, MOJO Magazine
