Optic Nerve Recordings have been carefully curating a reissue series of 7″ records from late last year, and come May 15th are set to release the next in this pantheon of late ’80s alternative music.
“Sean Connery” was originally released in 1990 by The James Dean Driving Experience and would be the 4th and final single from the Brtish C86 group.
By virtue of Optic Nerve’s Optic Sevens 2.0 series (which already boasts reissues of The Wedding Present and The Vaselines), all four singles from The James Dean Driving Experience have been compiled onto a silver-coloured 7″ and includes a poster and postcard once more.
The pressing is limited to 800 copies, and given the almost unacknowledged nature of the group in present day is definitely something jangle-pop fans, both ardent and curious (and even old school Flying Nun fans for that matter) should be looking to invest in.
Side A: Sean Connery / Never Means Enything
Side B: Hicksville U.S.A / World Weary and Wise.
