Friday from the vault – The Gin Blossoms

The Wookie doesn’t ask for much, but he’s been on at me to feature the Gin Blossoms in FFTV for a while now. Forever favourites of Top Gear compilations for their 1994 monster hit ‘Hey Jealousy’, they were actually a very underrated pop-Americana hybrid, if you can countenance such a thing. The band had a tragic backstory (including the suicide of a founding member before the release of their debut) and never seemed entirely comfortable being front and centre in the post-grunge vacuum. Still, they made some great music, and here in proof of that statement is their 1994 single (the other one) ‘Found Out About You’.
