Eight One Nine (1992)
Another Monday, another Odd Numbers record. This time up we have thew band's second 7". As with a great many of Odd Numbers singles, all four of these songs are also on other releases. Every song from this 7" is on the Retrofitted For Today album and the title track "From Cradle To Grave" is also on Jazz Cigarettes.
We've got four classic Odd Numbers tracks on this one though. All four are upbeat mod rockers with great melody in the vocals and the sort of bouncy energy that sounds like late era Chisel or peak The Jam.
I do love this band and while I'm excited to add so many new singles to the collection, I do wish there were more songs that weren't already on other albums. Still, they are great songs.
