#72 of CFNY's Best 87 of 87, The Mighty Lemon Drops, Out of Hand

The 87 of 87 introduced me to this underrated band from Wolverhampton. I can still hear my mother: "The Mighty Lemon Drops? What kind of band name is that?"

Later, I would hear "My Biggest Thrill," which actually predates "Out of Hand," on Rochester's WITR.

"Into the Heart of Love" was once in heavy rotation on 120 Minutes:

Here's another great song.

Thinking about Wolverhampton makes me think of a friend I had while living in Germany. After I moved back to the States, and he went home to Wolverhampton, we exchanged mixtapes for about a year or two before losing touch. He was a big fan of the Tindersticks.
