The Justines - Worry



Mike Schulman of the mighty Slumberland Records released the Why Popstars Can't Dance double LP in 1994. It features 17 bands, typically 2 songs per band. It's an indie-star-studded cast too: Honeybunch, The Artisans, Rocketship, The Steamkings, Stereolab, Lorelei, Hood, Boyracer, Henry's Dress, The Ropers, Linda Smith, Magpies, glo-worm, Jupiter Sun, The Justines, Jane Pow, and St. Christopher. Many of the songs appear on other releases by the bands, but if memory serves (it often serves up errors, mind) the vinyl version contains more bands/songs than the CD version. Any verifiers? There are 2 J-bands on the roster here, but although I like some Jane Pow songs, "Reorganise" is not among them, so I'm just going to share The Justines' indie-pop-with-strings contribution with you this week. Man, this band sounds a lot like The Ropers. Like identical. They must share a band member, at least.
