Song of the day: RAINCOATS – Fairytale in the Supermarket (1979)

Here’s a video of the Raincoats’ terrific “Fairytale in the Supermarket”. It was directed by Gina Birch sometime in the nineties, I think, so only features two of the band. The sound’s a bit wonky too, and it features some of the worst acting you’re ever likely to see. The wee girls are cool, though, and of course it is one of the best songs from the post-punk era.
