The Lobsters have been namedropped on these pages numerous times, and had an album (Headache Rhetoric) featured here in August of 2007. To me they were the pinnacle of the British C86 indie rock movement - card-carrying jangle meisters, and proud of it. This session contains a crucial non-lp stunner, "I'm Going to Heaven to See if it Rains." The version here bests it's original single incarnation, and that's no small feat. They may not have realized it at the time, but the Close Lobsters had something pretty colossal to offer. Too bad so few people were listening.
