Back around 1999, we loved to trawl the MP3 reserves of Vitaminic, a site that was kind of the European equivalent of eMusic. The company’s English-language sites have been dormant since last December; like the good pack rats we are, though, we’ve held on to some of our favorite files from back in the day. The Scottish band Huckleberry’s over-the-top romp “Morocco” was one of our most-played finds, and we still give it a spin when we want to add a little bit of foppishness to our day. Alas, the band’s name makes it somewhat difficult to Google–a ton of Mark Twain reference pages keep popping up in our search results–and Allmusic isn’t much help, either. Anyone feel like helping us solve a seven-year-old mystery?
