They were a tragically underrated band

that_petrol_emotion

Their name was That Petrol Emotion and they recorded five albums between 1986 and 1994. They played two-guitar rock music, vaguely political, always of the highest quality, precise and passionate at the same time. For some reason they never really caught on. Today you can get their albums for next to nothing; Amazon lists used copies of End of the Millennium Psychosis Blues starting at $1.79, Chemicrazy at $1.98, and Fireproof at one cent. These are their later albums, not as critically beloved as their first two, but still really excellent stuff.

For your listening pleasure, here’s a song from the B-side of one of their singles that you can’t get on CD (big ups to Bob at Cheese of the World for the digitizing facilities). It’s a lovely slow number called Chrome.
