Northern Uproar Singles Retrospective

I’m a long time fan of these guys and hopefully you dig them. Northern Uproar are one of those hidden little Britpop gems with their career cut a little short before reforming in 2006.  Before the breakup they blessed us with one of the old great fan (or official?) website’s of the late 90’s, two stellar albums, and a set of quality singles.  Upon returning the band have released two albums though the albums have not yielded official singles as the band has gone the independent route.  Below is a walk through of those 7 singles from the 90’s.

Some kind of label/band statement is going on here I guess. A slight and solid re-write from an earlier b-side the horns sound a bit too Morning Glory, but it's tastefully done. Edging on that "post-britpop" sound the song treads along similar to the song Town.
