Artist: Lucksmiths
Label: Matinee
Product Type: 7-INCH SINGLE
UPC: 708527607718
Genre: Indie Rock/Pop, Australian

Plucked fresh from the ether, here it is - the final offering of new Lucksmiths material! Released one-year posthumously, 'Get-to-Bed Birds' collects the last two songs the band scribed before hitting Splitsville. Both a and B-sides are non-album tracks, recorded especially for separate compilations: 'Get-to-Bed Birds' was originally featured on the 'Matinée Grand Prix' CD, while B-side 'The World of Professional Golf 1994' appeared on one edition of Australian literary journal the Lifted Brow's collections. The title-track is a gem; drawn from the well of introspection occasioned by New Year's Eve, 'Get-to-Bed Birds' is a weary-eyed tale of a drunken wee-hours stumble through familiar streets. 'The World of Professional Golf 1994', meanwhile, is the wistful lament of a caffeinated couch-dweller's televised sports fixation. Unintentionally, the coupling of the two songs makes for a well-rounded summary, neatly pulling together some well-worn Lucksmiths themes (drinking/sports/revelry/pensiveness), and dishing them up attractively on one glorious, beautifully packaged piece of funeral black vinyl. Having served sixteen years on the planet as a hard-working indie pop troupe, The Lucksmiths, through a coveted knack for turning the phrase and touching the heart, earned themselves a place alongside forebears the Go-Betweens in the annals of great literate Australian pop. Get-to-Bed Birds is a superb coda to an illustrious career.
