At the time of this compilation lp,Terry 'the housewives favourite Radio 2 DJ' Wogan's current running joke was........ ,and it is hilarious, that nobody knew where Leicester was! As with most 'jokes' there is a certain element of truth involved in this, as most people don't really know where it is,and they all think we (yes i am from leicester,and i know where it is), speak with a birmingham accent(the brummy accent stops after coventry at the end of the M69 ,and before Hinckley). Hence the title of this record.
Leicester always had a thriving music scene, producing such greats(*I'm being ironic here) as Family, Kasabian*, Yeah Yeah Noh,Prolapse, Gaye Bikers On Acid,Crazyhead, Volcano The Bear,Bomb Party,Basement Jaxx, Englebert Humperdinck, and the greatest of the lot, Showaddywaddy. Also represented on this comp are the groops on the edge of it all, including DIY legends, The Deep Freeze Mice; who even feature on the Nurse With Wound list. But i am mystified at the absence of anything from cassette legends The Midnight Circus ( see previous post of Angst In My Pants). Not quite in the league of the two Manchester compilations posted earlier,but it has its moments, live the 'Modern Living' track, and Ronnie Slicker and The Banditz,etc.
