SONG OF THE DAY Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – I Could Be An Angle

Today I dug out two of my all time favourite albums, turned the volume right up and enjoyed them every bit as much today as I did the day they first came out well over ten years ago!

Brighton’s psychobilly rockers, The Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster came together in 1999, releasing their first two in albums in 2002 and 2004, and if you play Horse Of The Dog and The Royal Society today, I don’t think you can tell these were over a decade old.

I Could Be an Angle was the second single from the band’s 2004 album, The Royal Society and if you haven’t already guessed, yes, the word ‘angle’ is a misspelling of the word ‘angel.’  The name of the song comes from a sign that a tramp was holding when they visited America and read as follows, “Please give me money, you never know, I could be an angle!!” ..I wonder how much money he got for claiming to be an angle!! Check it out above.
