Release Info: Brilliant Orange - Happy Man ep (1985, Zulu)
Recently had a request for Brilliant Orange which I'm more than happy to fulfill. The work of a Vancouverite quartet, the Happy Man ep appears to be the group's one and only vinyl missive, supposedly issued a scant four months following their 1985 gestation. While not terribly distinguishable from the myriad of hard-strummed, indie guitar conglomerations of their era, a bevy of astute pop chops no doubt behooved Brilliant Orange. The concluding "Shotguns, Cacti and Vengeance," a sharp, cowpunk send-up, caught me slightly off guard. The video for the title song can be viewed below following the tracklist.
