The Mining Co. “Mountain Fires” – Listen

The new album from London based indie-folksters The Mining Co. looks back to a different time: “a time of total freedom, a wild childhood, long days and nights spent listening to radio stations like Radio Luxembourg, before the internet and before mobile phone communication and the start of a love for music: Elvis, Springsteen, New Wave: the soundtrack to love – come, gone and missed – a celebration to the past that still shines brightly.”  That’s what the PR says although from personal experience, childhoods in the 80s were Jimmy Young, music drowned in over production and being tucked up in bed by about 5.30pm with cauliflower cheese (again).  This track from it is still lovely.
