A tompot blenny is a little intertidal seafood common in the waters around THE UK. It is also a duo from your East Midlands of Britain whose sparse, mainly acoustic music resembles a mix between your jangled nerves of mid-period Go-Betweens as well as the mild lullabies from the Softies. The duo, which created in the middle-’90s, includes vocalist and bassist Carl and guitarist Craig (in accurate U.K. indie pop style, they don’t make use of their last titles). Tompot Blenny was among the 1st groups authorized to Shinkansen, the label began by Matt Haynes following the dissolution of his fabled indie imprint Sarah Information. Their 1st EP, Thinking about Means of Keeping You Warm, was a three-song 7″ in support of the second launch around the label, showing up in-may 1996. That November, the duo released a follow-up, Green May be the Greatest Colour, the Compact disc which included the three tunes from the 1st vinyl-only EP. This EP also included the dreamy “The Short-Haired Lady in the Left-Legged Pineapple,” a musical tribute to a product sales clerk at a peculiarly called record store in Loughborough that’s being among the most tongue-in-cheek appraisals from the indie-kid way of life this part of Nick Hornby’s Large Fidelity. Small was heard about Tompot Blenny after those two produces; the music group produced no recordings as the primary duo experimented unsuccessfully with growing right into a proper full-sized music group. Carl and Craig do ultimately add drummer Alan, who produced his debut around the group’s first genuine album, Found out Under Blankets, released in November 2000.
