The Loft Model Village Single
Someone who worked for the Static Caravan record label came up with a very nice design for this single. The concept is easy to relate to--if the song is called "Model Village," then find something urban and contemporary. By choosing a scene with garishly lit logos, rather than a rural English village full of storybook houses, are we to infer a bit of social commentary? Or is this just a great single from one of the lost bands of the 1980s?
The Loft were Peter Astor's band before signing to Creation and becoming the Weather Prophets and all that. Some of the songs from The Loft ended up being recorded later; there's one that I know of and there could be others. Model Village was a great single.
