Mod-A-Day: Wards of Court

How Could You Say One Thing … and presumably mean another. That's the title of the best song from The Wards of Court. It was actually the B-side of The Wards only single, "All Night Girl" a minor hit in its own right, and features a mean tambourine, piercing horns, and some great drumming. Wards of Court probably are better known for covers than for originals, but this one is a real shaker, and very soulful. The band had a nice freakbeat soul sound not unlike some of the other blue-eyed soul outfits of the era, such as The Equals.
