Beat Happening - Black Candy


  • £19.99

Originally released in 1989, Black Candy is the third Beat Happening album, raw and unchained, Bret, Heather and Calvin explore the more sinister aspects of life, with an eye towards the relief that can be found in its simpler pleasures.

"Melancholy" is a word that has been used to describe this approach, though Black Candy does include many optimistic moments. If you like your pop music effervescent and carefree there's "T.V. Girl" and "Other Side" to polish your bike to. If you like it black, here's a blast of playhouse on fire, pyjama party and haunted shadow to propel your day.
