The year is 1990 and the month is May. There's a hint of rain in the air. I would later find out from a future girlfriend that this was the weekend of UC Berkeley's commencement. I was chillaxing in the superbly subpar SOMA Hotel Britton listening to music and hearing the "chhhhhhhh chhhhhhhh" of tires on rainy pavement below on 7th. St., six floors below I was listening to The Sundays a lot, but Saint Etienne was on rotation on music television catching my eye::
I loved this song and video & I get the same feel good vibe from Pont des Arts, which I blogged about on Monday. Hugh Little, from the band, was kind enough to send me an MP3 of "Halos," which you can hear if you click on the link above. I'll post "Halos" EP telease info. & any tour dates as I receive it. I love these guys' music.
Here's a live version of Saint Etienne's "Nothing Can Stop Us" from 2006::
Another live version with slightly better sound::
