CRE004 - THE JASMINE MINKS “Think!” w/ Jim Shepherd (The Jasmine Minks)

CRE004 - THE JASMINE MINKS “Think!” w/ Jim Shepherd (The Jasmine Minks)

You can count on us to take a while but bring the goods! Just a purely incredible single, and frontman Jim even PLAYS THE A-SIDE for us!! We get to the bottom of the fretless bass mystery and we learn a lot more about the Aberdeen, Scotland-based ‘Minks, the first Creation band to come from outside the Communication Blur crowd. Stay tuned for three more Minks singles to come, all fucking CLASSICS.

Links to the songs in question are included below, and we highly recommend the “Cut Me Deep: Anthology 1984 1984-2014” compilation on Cherry Red on 2CD and streaming services.
