Sundae Club's second album, 'British Summer Time' is available exclusively to download for your mp3-player gadgets and i-Tuneses, in which they take you on a Journey across Continents with their Travel Trilogy; you can savour the wholesome meaty goodness (chicken if you're vegetarian) of 'Pies'; spot the Bev Bevanesque drum solo in 'Honey Bee'; marvel as a moonlighting electrician from the Midlands ignores New Labour's green policy on tungsten light bulb usage and get slightly miffed as the new people move in to the flat above. It's all here, and Sam comes too.
Rather different from their debut, 'Technostalgia', but a vastly expanded arsenal of vintage electronics and the trusty Mellotron guarantee the Sundae Club Sound.
