THE UNEXPECTED – \’Maybe\’ / \’You Movin\’ / \’I Need Your Lovin\’ (Trouble And Tea Records 002) 1998

Pretty good three track EP by this Spanish folk rockin\’ band on Trouble & Tea Records. They also released 45s by other Spanish mod bands The Blackbirds and The Mistakens. These are also worth your time. I\’ll probably write about The Blackbirds later.
I also dig the name of the record label. This must be as a nod to the mod classic by Manfred Mann called \’Trouble and Tea\’… too much of a coincidence otherwise!

All songs on this EP are sung in English. There\’s a choice cover version of Gene Clark\’s \’You Movin\’ which was recorded by The Byrds in their very early studio sessions but never released at the time. My favourite song is the closer \’I Need Your Lovin\’ which is a fast paced beat pounder and sounds very Beatlesesque from their 1964 era.

The record was recorded at Odds Studios in Xixon, Spain.
