Let The Day Begin...Let The Day Start!: Day 80 - Sunday Morning Favourites #10 Aztec Camera

Don't really have to say an awful lot about this because the music pretty much speaks for itself. The debut album from Aztec Camera still sounds wonderful all these years on, so many fantastic songs on it. It's hard to fathom but Roddy Frame was just 19 years old when it was released (having formed the band in 1980 at 16 years old), he was already beginning to show a real maturity with regard to his songwriting.

My old friend from Ruts, Ruts DC, Dave Ruffy was playing drums for the band at the time. That's probably how I first got to see them live.
