Mix: Pete Wiggs (Saint Etienne) – Mix!
February 21, 2011
Saint Etienne seem to be one of those bands that has its heart in the right place. From the off with ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’ they paved the way for melodic, club influenced music all wrapped around a classic pop sound. I get the feeling they still believe in pop. They still run a fan club. Not sure how many bands do that these days. Aside from that they have always gone forwards (while going backwards) and this mix from Pete Wiggs of the band sort of shows that perfectly with a mix of pyschedelic soul and classic pop noises taking in Dorothy Ashby, The Supremes, Ike and Tina and Sam Dees along the way.
