"I never normally bother to leave reviews on this site, but felt move to do so by the strength of my disagreement with the previous, one star review.The Popguns were a relatively obscure indie guitar band from Brighton. Female vocals, wonderful melodies, wistful lyrics, fantastic jangly guitar. Admittedly their last album wasn't up to much, but their first two, Eugenie and Snog are classic albums of perfect pop songs, and it is from these two records that the tracks on "Another Year Another Address" are culled.When this CD came out I bought five copies to give to friends (who all love it). And I'm not a generous man. That's how great this album is!"
For all fans of pop

"The Popguns are well worth checking out. This comp collects tracks from Snog and Eugenie both of which are stellar pop records. Somehow my vinyl seems to have gone missing so Cherry Red has really come to the rescue by reissuing this material.
The Popguns are also interesting for their indie historical significance as they featured Shaun Charman, formerly of the Wedding Present, on drums from '88-'91. His drumming is superlative on these recordings and gives the tracks real poppy bounce and excitement.
The Popguns' finest moment, "Waiting for the Winter" is featured on the Rough Trade Indiepop compilation released this year (2004). The Rough Trade comps are solid collections of representative tracks from the periods and genres they investigate. Their selection of the Popguns further solidifies the band's importance."
You must hear this CD

"This album sums up all that was right with UK indie music in the mid to late 1980's, but sadly never made it into the mainstream. Another Year.. is a comprehensive "best of" compilation by the most criminally underated band ever. Tuneful, melodic, catchy, just plain brilliant, the 18 tracks are all inspirational, its a pot of gold just waiting to be discovered. What are you waiting for?? go ahead, buy it!! ENJOY it !! If you like full on, fizzing indie guitar pop with a lot of feeling thrown in, you won't regret buying this."
