RareOnes Vol6 - Blessed Ethel - Welcome to the Rodeo

RareOnes Vol6 - Blessed Ethel - Welcome to the Rodeo (1996)

Blessed Ethel were one of those bands that fell into a hole in between "NME" Genres touring with NWOTNW bands such as S*M*A*S*H and The Nubiles as well as Britpop bands such as Lush and The Longpigs. They were an altogether spikier proposition than those bands with Sara Doran's voice grabbing your attention like a cross between Courtney Love and Debbie Harry. This album (1996) was the first and only long player they released, although there were several non album singles such as "Dog" and "Rat" They came to my attention supporting S*M*A*S*H and bought the single 3 Minuite Mind at the little record stall at the gig.
