Further Off The Chart Eight

Further Off The Chart Eight

It’s the end of another dexy and time to round up some of the tracks we talked about on Off The Chart over the past ten weeks but didn’t get a chance to play. Now we have a chance, so here they are! Further Off The Chart Eight includes two cover versions of the same song, a bag of washing machine parts and another excuse to drag out the Jesse Rae “Inside Out” gag even further.
