The Colours - Details at Thirteen ep (1984, Orange George)

This southern Cali quartet do the jangle and strum thing with homespun aplomb and more than enough charm to get by, purloining a thing or two from REM - and they wouldn't sound entirely out of place on a bill with one of their other local contemporaries, The Three O'Clock.  Other than that, I can't offer much in the way of background info on the Colours, who may have only issued this one slice of vinyl.  Modest, but mightily effective stuff here.  A few notches shy of a masterpiece, Details at Thirteen is at the very least well above average.  Funny they went with a black and white sleeve, contrary to their moniker.

Just a note. They more or less morphed into the band Little America.

Interesting....Little America certainly upped their sound when got to Geffen, quite a bit more from this EP! Great stuff tho, thanks!!!

You're welcome folks. Little America? Don't think I'm familiar with them. When did they record?

1987 - 1989 I believe
