This Moment in Slack History: Morsels from the Last Great Era of the 7 Inch Record

"This Moment in Slack History" collects songs from 90s indie 7 inches. For further explanation, please see my original post here.

The McTells "Alice"
Back when I posted that Bartlebees single I stated my general distaste for twee pop. Yet here I am posting another twee pop single. Maybe I do actually like twee pop.

Like the Bartlbees, the McTells were apparently pretty prolific though this is the only piece of their vinyl I own. And it's a neat little thing: two songs on side A and totally blank on side B. Why? I don't know but as I see the sticker on this for was only $2.49 American I think it was an effort by the Four Letter Words label to keep prices down. I would assume that getting a 45 pressed on only one side is cheaper than both. But enough about the medium, let's get to the music. It reminds me of the Undertones. Nothing wrong with that.
