Release date: 1980
A compilation CD by The Delmontes, a cult garage/indiepop band from Scotland.
Formed in Edinburgh in 1979, The Delmontes released just two singles on Josef K-affiliated indie label Rational Records: Tous les Soirs (1980) and Don't Cry Your Tears (1981). Boasting a poised avant-retro sound and vision (three of the five band members were female), the band anticipated subsequent indie trends such as C86, Creation, Sarah and Twee. Both DinDisc and Zoo Records offered to sign the group, who completed a UK tour with the Teardrop Explodes, but sadly this potential went unfulfilled and the band split at the close of 1982.
Digitally remastered, Carousel features 24 tracks, including all five songs from the Rational 7-inch singles, as well as a rich harvest of unreleased demo tracks recorded between 1980 and 1982. The booklet includes a detailed band history plus archive Delmontes photos and ephemera.
