Emily? Who the fuck is she to warrant a double album on vinyl? Never heard of her…?
To set your ignorance straight, Emily were an indie band from back in the day (late 80s) who managed to coerce Alan McGee into signing them to his Creation label. They appeared on a Creation compilation album called Doing It For The Kids and released a 12 inch EP called Irony. They did record an album for the label but it was never released.
Despite rubbing shoulders with Creation types, their style was more C86 – Lloyd Cole than pre-Britpop guitar driven arr-kid stuff.
