Pelican – Jenny Darling

Pelican –Jenny Darling/My Glasses –Á. Á Records – Á Á 017 (1974 Iceland)

All the way from Iceland and giving Change http://purepop1uk.blogspot.com/2011/01/change-lazy-london-lady.html  a good run for their money, Pelican’s first single is a great bouncy and quirky BubbleGlam number that was actually a hit amongst the frozen Tundra. Not sure how many sales that actually equated to, but Pelican can be considered a big national catch. Whilst Change went to London, Pelican went to Massachusetts to record, but their appeal remained strictly local. I love the near Walkers (DK) delivery along with the twists and turns that showcase a true distinctiveness in Purepop mode.

Many Thanks to Hannes for the Icelandic package!

Splendid... Eidur Gudjohnsen, the Glam Years. He should perform this on Sky.
