329 – The La’s – There She Goes (1990)
Written by Lee Mavers
Produced by Bob Andrews/Steve Lillywhite
Label – Go! Discs

Irresistible and totally original jangle pop from a band that remain a mystery to this day. Grumpy front man Lee Mavers had all the talent in the world, but his paranoia for the perfect product meant that The La’s would record one excellent album and leave the listeners wondering what might have been. Ultimately, the song pre dates Brit pop and the band influenced many future stars that enjoyed success throughout the decade.
