Thanks for all the positive feedback on the previous postings which have featured the singles released by Cinerama between 1998 and 2003.

As I’ve said previously, none of them made the singles charts but this is more an indictment on the failure of radio station producers to hear quality when put in front of them by pluggers than any other factor. Cinerama were a fabulous outfit….every bit as enjoyable as The Wedding Present….and all of their singles deserve to be better known.

Oh I say ‘were’ as if Cinerama had gone for ever. David Gedge is compering a day of music and frolics in Brighton this coming August, and there on the bill will be a very rare and welcome appearance by Cinerama…….

Anyway, today’s offering is the band’s 10th single, released in 2002. As ever, it has a quite astonishing Gedge lyric. It’s one of his infidelity stories of the one-night stand variety. And a belter of a tune:-

mp3 : Cinerama – Quick Before It Melts

Sadly, this is a single I haven’t been able to get my hands on, so the track is the extended version lifted from the LP Torino. If anyone has a copy of the singles that they would like to sell, I’d love to hear from you.

In the absence of the b-sides, here’s a Peel Sessions version to enjoy:-
