RADIO LINER DOWNLOAD

We've dug up a quirky little set of radio liners from 1986 to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


Radio Liner Compilation download


Also, feel free to download this little gem from the vaults. "Don't Tell Me" was an outtake from around the Play Deep /Bangin' era, and it features the band in their early natural style! Songs like this made it difficult for Columbia to categorize the band as rock or pop, but as we all know the Outfield found their own way to cut a path through musical genres and create songs that just made you feel good, regardless of where it fit!


"Don't Tell Me" download


Cheers to a New Year!

THE OUTFIELD GOES TOP 10

The Outfield make the top 10 this week with their single California Sun

'CALIFORNIA SUN' STILL RISING #22

The Outfield continue to climb the FMQB A/C top 40 chart with their new radio hit 'California Sun'. The band jumped five spots this week from #27 to #22. The momentum looks like it will continue as 'California Sun' is still armed with a bullet and picking up new stations on a weekly basis.

SPRIGHTLY SOUND OF "CALIFORNIA SUN' CLIMBS TO #27

If you were to overlook The Outfield's most recent material taken from their brand new album, Replay, you would be missing out on material just as strong as any track from 1989's Voices of Babylon.

The band's new single, 'California Sun', has climbed steadily up the A/C radio chart this week to #27.

'California Sun' picks up where Voices of Babylon left off, layered production and pristine performances. What's also immediately apparent is the approachable radio sound that lifted the band through their first three album releases.

'California Sun' is a distinctive return to what radio used to be. It's a song marked by complex arrangements with open spaces that is carried by the main melody line that has a bounce to its gait. John Spinks is at the top of his game as he widely adheres to his own song writing brilliance.

The sound is confident and markedly manifest itself in the lead vocals of Tony Lewis and the splendid backbeat of Alan Jackman's artful drumming. With its jangling guitar chorus and soaring vocal harmonies, 'California Sun' is concise as it is immediate.

In simple terms, John Spinks, Tony Lewis and Alan Jackman have re-discovered their chemistry and made a very specific sounding album that can only be identified as The Outfield, entirely successfully.
