CRE005 - THE PASTELS “Something Going On” w/ Stephen McRobbie (The Pastels, Buba & The Shop Assistants, The Paintings, Geographic record label)

The first of three fantastic Pastels singles for Creation brings us in contact with a true pillar of pop music, Stephen Pastel. Not only do we get into the details of the release of this single and the band’s history prior to Creation, we dip into the full span of the still-active band’s career. Listen for Stephen’s Alan McGee impersonation; we’re gathering a compilation of those for future release.

The band’s early works are only spottily available on streaming services, but the band is currently in the process of reissuing various albums. Most of the band’s post-1990 catalog is available on streaming services through Domino Records.
