What more is there to say...?

An evergreen, milestone, miraculous healing of pop.

THE STREETS A Grand Don't Come For Free (2004)
























I bet you didn't expect to find this on THIS IS INDIE.
The first time that I ever listened to THE STREETS was far from home on BFBS radio station. I had a meeting every wednesday at 1 p.m. and I always listened to a program called The Mystery Year which was about guessing a certain year by just some headlines and some music from that very year.
The sad thing about it was that the meeting started at 1 p.m. and the radio show wouldn't tell the year before 1 p.m. which sucked really.
But on the way back I once was listening to a band I have never heard before and it felt like the radio station played two different songs at the same time.
It was THE STREETS.

And now enjoy
THE STREETS - A Grand Don't Come For Free (2004)
01 It Was Supposed to Be So Easy
02 Could Well Be In
03 Not Addicted
04 Blinded by the Lights
05 Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way
06 Get Out of My House
07 Fit But You Know It
08 Such a Twat
09 What Is He Thinking?
10 Dry Your Eyes
11 Empty Cans
