Markus Holler – Achin’ For Summer

In and out of bands since 1986, Holler laid down a set of tracks between 1990 and 1992 featuring Tam Johnstone (The General Store) and Rick Corcoran (later to achieve cult status with his neo-psychedelic The Orgone Box). Cast in the melodic, guitar-driven power pop mould of Cheap Trick, Dwight Twilley et al, this album effortlessly hurdles the constrictions of the genre, aspiring to earn a place in the pantheon of great British adult pop alongside Squeeze, Nick Lowe, even The Beatles.
