REWIND: The Delgados - 'Pull The Wires From The Wall'

Posted on the 26 April 2014 by Rw/ff @rwffmusic

REWIND: The Delgados - 'Pull The Wires From The Wall'After many years, I have FINALLY added an album by The Delgados to my collection after I found a copy of their second LP 'Peloton' a couple of weeks ago for a bargain price. I've been meaning to buy it for a LONG time. I don't know how I spent so long NOT listening to Emma Pollock's voice, as it is truly sensational. 

Steve Lamacq used to play this amazing single on Radio 1's much-missed Evening Session during the cold autumn evenings of 1998, and what a wonderful tune it was. The band also played a number of John Peel sessions and released a number of other singles which I still own on 7" vinyl... 'Pull The Wires From The Wall' gave the group their first chart hit (if you can call number 69 a hit). 'Pull the Wires From the Wall' was voted number one in John Peels' Festive Fifty countdown of 1998. They split in 2005 after Stewart Henderson quit due to no longer being able to "to pour so much of my energy and time into something that never quite seemed to get the attention or respect [he] felt it deserved. The band are well known for founding the Chemikal Underground label, which the four ex-members of the group still run together.
