Happily 'Everlasting'


You might think a recently released song called "Everlasting Gobstopper" might have something to do with the new"Wonka" film.

The track by The Veldt is actually 34 years old... the Raleigh, N.C.-based soul-shoegaze-alternative rock band has finally seen the release of what was to be their debut record, produced by the Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie. Capitol Records shelved the recording in 1989, and reportedly sent the band back into the studio to do another record, which turned out to be Marigold.

Anyway! Always thought they were very under-appreciated...

The Veldt were great! They had a self produced project after their major label adventures that was fantastic but I don't know if it was ever released.
