Nature's way - Harmony Ambulance

When bands fall apart, separate members often go on to do other things. Sometimes solo, sometimes in other bands. In the case of All About Eve, singer Julianne Regan got together with Gilbert Gabriel to form Harmony Ambulance. They released one single on the Rough Trade label in April 1993. And then - poof - the duo ceased to exist. (Of course, Julianne would go on to form Mice and then reform with All About Eve - but that's a different story.)

As always, it was next to impossible to find this single in the Netherlands. During a holiday in London in 1994, I went to the Rough Trade shop, hoping to find it. But unfortunately, they didn't. They did, however, offer to send it via mail order. I paid upfront in the shop, and a few weeks later there it was. Two great tracks. It's a mystery why they were never released since.

My collection: 7" single no. 2207
Found: Rough Trade shop, London & mail order, 1994
Cost: 3 pounds
Tracks: 'Nature's way' / 'All this and heaven'
