Aztec Camera - Just Like Gold
Aztec Camera
Just Like Gold / We Could Send Letters
Postcard Records : Postcard 81-3 (1981)

Roddy Frame's excellent debut on Postcard. I really liked both of the singles that he released on the label and later picked up the High Land, Hard Rain album that he released on Rough Trade in 1982. Album which brought him a good bit of critical and some commercial success. My interest in the band sort of waned but I did buy the excellent Love album when it was issued in 1987. An album which, if I remember well, was very successful. Haven't heard or bought anything by Aztec Camera ever since.

The 'Just Like Gold' single features the famous 'kilties' artwork which was used for only three of the label's releases. Also included in each of these discs was... A Postcard with the lyrics to the song on the A-side.

I had coffee today with David Mulholland who played drums on this single. This was the first time I had seen him in over 20 years.

This came with a postcard of the band members walking over what looks like the highlands of Scotland and the lyrics on the back. Have it somewhere.
