The Boo Radleys released the Every Heaven EP, four tracks of dreamy psychedelia which came out on the Tuesday after Easter after being delayed – like lots of records at the time – by the financial problems at Rough Trade distribution.

NME described it as “post-rave meltdown noise trance”, but for some reason awarded the Single of the Week accolade to ‘Size Of A Cow’, while Melody Maker once again saw sense and named it theirs, saying it “never outstays its welcome, a fabulous addition to the ever-expanding trove of dazzling EPs by the likes of Slowdive, Moose, Swervedriver and Ride”.

Well said.
