Clearlake | RUG148 | Released: 17/02/03
Almost The Same is described by singer and writer Jason Pegg as a 'veiled love song'. ''It's about friendship and having something in common with someone,'' he says. With a simple, yet moving lyric and ethereal melody set over a buzzy, Joe Meek wall-of-sound, Almost The Same ably fulfils Jason's mission for Clearlake's sonic style ''to find the best garage down Tin Pan Alley.'' The exclusive single mix version is by Irvin Baker, who also created a 'Winterlit' remix for the CD. The 7'' B-side (also on CD) is a previously unreleased mix of early Clearlake classic, I Want To Live In A Dream, by the esteemed Ben Hillier (Elbow, Blur).
