Nights At The Roundtable - New Fads - 1991

Nights At The Roundtable - New Fads (New Fast Automatic Daffodils) with All Over My Face (Remix) 1991

<strong>New Fast Automatic Daffodils - changed it to New Fads for short - easier to pronounce loaded.</strong>


New Fast Automatic Daffodils (New Fads for short) were a somewhat short-lived Indie band from 1988 to 1995. They came in around the Madchester period but weren't associated with it. Even though with a name like you'd think . . . . - actually, it came from a poem by Adrien Henri that mixed an ad for a car with a poem by Wordsworth that just seemed like a good idea at the time.

They never really made over here in the States, although they had a pretty good following in the UK - not massive, but respectable with several singles reaching the charts and their first album hitting the top 50.

Tonight's track, All Over My Face is a remix of a track that appeared on their second album Pigeonhole. This one originally appeared in the second issue of Volume Magazine (the magazine with accompanying CD of new acts) that came out in November of 1991.
