Released: August 2008, CD-Download
The Stairs were truly one of the great-lost bands of the early Nineties who (along with The La’s) influenced, a whole new generation of musicians (including The Coral & The Zutons). They released little, apart from a few singles – one of these being the legendary ‘Weed Bus ‘ and the classic debut album, ‘Mexican R’n’B’. – Until now!’Who Is This Is’is the previously unreleased second album ( Recorded in 1992/93), rumored to have existed – with the only known master copy recently been rediscovered. It proves to be heady mixture of Psychedelia, Motown, Rock, Soul and R ‘n’ B and confirms their historic credentials.It’s only now in 2008, a decade or so after their demise that The Stairs have become as legendary as the bands they so admired. This rediscovered gem, bridges Edgar Summertyme’s journey from principal Stairs songwriter into becoming Edgar ‘Jones ‘ Jones as he is now known – an artist with two critically acclaimed albums ‘Soothing Music For Stray Cats’ and ‘ Gettin’ a little Help’.
