So Tomorrow – Official Secrets Act (2008, One Little Indian Records, Taken from ‘Understanding Electricity’
The Official Secrets Act were a short lived indie band from London, whose members all shared an interest in British military history. Their bassist was the son of the man who recorded this piece of pop brilliance.
They only released one album, the really quite good ‘Understanding Electricty’. Musically they are a bit of mish mash, you can hear bands like Talking Heads in there, but also some of the purer pop sentiments of bands like Prefab Sprout and ‘Modern Life’ era Blur.
‘So Tomorrow’ was the bands first single, it did not chart and it was followed by two others, which again did not bother the charts. If you want to hear the B Side to ‘So Tomorrow’ here it is.
