The Boo Radleys - Kaleidoscope (1990) + Boo Up! (1991)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
The Boo Radleys - Giant Steps (1993)

Two early EPs from supremely underrated, power pop-savvy shoegazers The Boo Radleys. If you're anything like me, you're sold within the first few seconds of the first song -- pretty much as soon as you hear that rich, fuzzed-out guitar tone.

Track listing:
1. Kaleidoscope
2. How I Feel
3. Aldous
4. Swansong
-Boo Up!-
1. Everybird
2. Sometime Soon She Said
3. Foster's Van
4. Song for Up!

You don't know how it feels to be dead

If you like this, you should hear:
Moose -
Sonny & Sam (1991)
Starflyer 59 -
Americana (1997)


  1. Yeah! What a goldmine the 90s shoegaze/powerpop/early alternative world was, when this was a second tier band. These guys would rightly be hailed as geniuses today.

      Thank you for these :D
