Adorable - Glastonbury 1993

Do you remember Adorable? Well let me jog your memory in case you're either forgetfull or too young. They burst onto the scene in 1992 with their debut single "Sunshine Smile" on Creation Records although that's not strictly true as the said track had been issued a year earlier on a white label on Money To Burn Records but that was only ever a white label and as I don't own a copy doesn't count. There were a couple more singles including the brilliant "Homeboy", a version of which is played in this set and eventually the band's debut album "Against Perfection" in the same year. This is really all you need to know about Adorable. There was a second album "Fake" in 1994 but to be perfectly honest it was a bit of a pig.
This set was recorded at the peak of their powers and was, as you will detect from the recording broadcast on BBC Radio 1 as part of their Glastonbury coverage in 1993.
