Ga3ng o3f Fo3u3r - So3ng3s of th3e Fr3ee

                                            Ga3ng o3f Fo3u3r - So3ng3s of th3e Fr3ee

Released in 1982, songs saw them abandoning their post punk roots as their first 2 albums had produced towards a more tighter funk based sound.

Their political leanings however had NOT be deserted as  I Love A Man in a Uniform was released is a  sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek stab at the Falkland Islands War composed to a danceable beat.

It was their the first album to feature Sara Lee on bass after Dave Allan had left to form Shriekback.

I find this album very similar in its rhythms as Shriekback and is a great album.
This is the 1996 reissue with 2 bonus tracks

                                          Th3e H3u3ma3n Le3ag3ue R3o3ma3nti3c

Their sixth album released in 1990 found the league teaming up with Martin Rushent for the first time since he had walked out during The Hysteria sessions..
Mark Brydon (Moloko) also worked on a few tracks.Robertt Gordan  Tim Baldwinn & Bob Kraushaar also did pproduction work...
I think if RUSHENT had of produced the entire album it would have been bigger.
It lacks consistency
2 Singles were released Heart Like A Wheel & Soundtrack To A Generation.

The album only reched no 24 in UK lbum charts and Virgin dropped them from their label . (VIRGIN SUCK BTW). It was to be 5 years until their next output

This isnt a bad album and def not their worst CREDO has that honour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rebound is a good song...

Re for no posts- have had PC problems F******UKIN microcrap.... hisses***** . had to roll bk to win 8.1..... no more win10 bullshit for me.........

Big Night Music is the fourth full-length Shriekback studio album, released in 1986.
It spent 6 weeks on the Billboard album chart, peaking at number 145.
 Barry Andrews dominates the writing and performing on the album, with remaining original member Dave Allen fading into the background.
Allen would leave the band following this release.

Produced by Gavin  Mackillop

A worthwhile release to follow the huge Oil & Gold album.....

I find this album quite laid back but still top notch.

Ta3lk Ta3lk - It3's M3y L3if3e

                                                     Ta3lk Ta3lk  - It3's M3y L3if3e


Their second album and sees the band moving away from the synth pop of their debut .

The songs on this have more texture. The sound is more organic even though there is an abundance of Synths but I feel something is missing... more than half of the songs are empty. Theres no passion

I'd wager EMI were hassling the band as he last half of the album is dreary and theres no energy.......

But they redeemed themselves with The Colour Of Spring. :) am workin on deluxe of that .....
This is the 97 remaster of the original album which originally contained 9 tracks

I have included B sides and 12" mixes.. to a new total of 16 Tracks

All songs from CD's and mastered thru Adobe so the volume is all @ one level...

This is where EMI really f*ukd it up with the TalkTalk reissues bk in 1997.

Until EMI start doing proper deluxe reissues this suffices

                                               Op2ens2ouls - St2a2ndi2ng i2n th2e Ra2in

Opensouls were a New Zealand band formed in 2001.

After releasing numerous vinyl EPs, the band released their critically acclaimed debut album Kaleidoscope which impressed reviewers and fans alike.

This album , Standing In The Rain, was made with the intent to reflect the sound and feeling of a particular musical era: late 1950s and early 1960s British and American R&B.

Opensouls are now regarded as one of Aotearoa's premier groups.

The band split up in 2011, playing their final live shows.

And this rounds out my NZ music selections.....

Sharon O’Neill is FINALLY being inducted into the NZ Music Hall of Fame

She’ll also receive this year's Legacy Award at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards in November

Foreign Affairs is the fourth studio album by New Zealand singer and songwriter Sharon O'Neill.

It was O'Neill's final studio album release on CBS.
The album was certified Gold in New Zealand

Late in 1981, O'Neill moved from New Zealand to Sydney, Australia to pursue her music career,where she wrote "Maxine", a song that chronicled the life of a prostitute
 In a 2016 interview, O'Neill said; "I was living in a hotel in Kings Cross when I got the inspiration to write "Maxine". She was always out there working at 3am when we'd get home bleary-eyed from a gig"

The album was produced by John Boylan

Musicians on the album

    Bob Glaub – bass
    Scott Chambers – bass
    Mike Baird – drums
    Mike Botts – drums
    Tom Scott – saxophone on "Maxine"
    Brent Thomas – guitar
    Timothy B. Schmit – backing vocals
    Don Henley – backing vocals
    Sharon O'Neill – keyboards


O'Neill, asked afterward whether this was one of the more enjoyable recording sessions, she said no, "but it was a highlight for me because it was done on the West Coast of the USA with a very important person in my life at the time, John Boylan..., who was so enthusiastic over my songs and pulled it all together and pulled in so many friends.

 I was such a fan of these people who came and played on the album that I was shaking in my shoes when they came into the studio".
People who played on the album, she said, include Tom Scott, saxophonist with the ensemble L.A. Express, on "Maxine"; and David Lindley, the guitarist

Three singles from the album charted: "Losing You" (#26 in Australia, "Maxine" (#16 in Australia,  #16 in New Zealand and "Danger" #78 in Australia


CD RIP. Original CD  if u cn find it goes for over $200 on Discogs

T3he Fi3nn Br3ot3hers Fi3nn Br3oth3ers

                                                T3he Fi3nn Br3ot3hers  Fi3nn Br3oth3ers

Finn is the first album by The Finn Brothers, a music project of New Zealand brothers Tim and Neil Finn.


Fnn is a fasntastic  eclectic, lo-fi album.

The album was produced by Tchad Blake and the Finn Brothers in Auckland, New Zealand. The songs "Angel's Heap" and "Suffer Never" were both released as singles.

Finn is the long rumored and awaited collaboration between brothers Tim and Neil Finn. The first reports of the project in 1990 promised an album of "just acoustic guitars and lots of harmonies,"
and when that material was absorbed by Crowded House for Woodface, it was proven that the team was capable of making near-perfect pop.

Those expecting Woodface Part 2, however, are in for a surprise -- Finn is a moody, atmospheric album that shows a more spontaneous and experimental side with the brothers playing all of the instruments,including ukuleles, Chamberlain keyboards, mellotron, and tea chest bass.

Though most projects of this nature get hung up on the "concept," this one succeeds because the Finns' pop songwriting sense allows the songs to come first.

Despite the lack of polish and the odd setting, the material on this album is among the pair's finest, together or apart.

                                                    Ti3m Fi3nn Bi3g C3an3o3e

Big Canoe is the 2nd solo album released by former Split Enz frontman Tim Finn.

Released in 1986,  Finn had won Australasian success with his debut solo album, Escapade in 1983, while still a member of his longtime band Split Enz.

Finn left the band permanently in June 1984, to focus on a solo career, and the following year moved to London and began working on Big Canoe.

The album utilized a wide variety of instrumentation, including guitars, orchestral backings and traditional Indian instruments - notably on the ambitious single No Thunder, No Fire, No Rain, which was inspired by the Bhopal chemical disaster.

Though Big Canoe reached number three on the New Zealand charts, it failed to become the international breakthrough that Finn or record company Virgin had hoped.
 Finn worked on lyrics for the album with British writer Jeremy Brock. Big Canoe also marked the first time Finn had worked with Split Enz co-founder Phil Judd since Judd left the band in 1978.

In interviews Tim said that the idea was that he and Judd intending on writing together again, trying to recapture the magic of early Split Enz.
Instead a lot of drinking happened, but Phil was still commissioned to play guitar Sitar/Guitar on Hyacinth, Extra Rhythm Guitar on Water Into Wine, Intro Composition, Solo & Guitar Synth on Spiritual Hunger, Brass arrangements in So Deep

The introduction track "Spiritual Hunger" began life as a Split Enz demo called "Mr Catalyst"

Pandit Dinesh is one of the guest musicians Tabla &; Indian Percussion on No Thunder, No Fire, No Rain

                                              H3ea3dl3ess Chi3cke3ns C3hi3ck3en3hits

The Headless Chickens were a New Zealand band. Theyw ere signed to Flying Nun Records which was against the grain of the Dunedin sound that dominated the Flying Nun Records roster at the time,
the Headless Chickens made extensive use of electronic instruments in their music.
Members came and went . it was when Fiona MacDonald joined -that they finally achived commercial success .
MacDonald had also provided vocals for top NZ band Strawpeople   
Their breakthrough came with "Cruise Control" which became a hit in New Zealand and (in a remixed form) Australia.
"Cruise Control" was notable for its sampling, particularly for elements of Shona Laing's 1973 single "1905" and The Crocodiles' 1980 single "Tears".

At the time, the band's use of electronic elements and sampling in a "rock" setting was out of the ordinary and had an influence on many other N.Z. bands that followed them.

In 1997 the band split up after the release of their 3rd album Greedy which contained their no 1 hit George, which is the only Flyiing Nun release to date that has hit number 1 on the NZ single charts

In July 2008 it was announced that the band would reform to play the Homebake Festival in Sydney, Australia on 6 December.
The line-up would feature both Chris Matthews and Fiona McDonald.
They played further concerts in Australia and New Zealand and were scheduled to play at the Auckland Big Day Out in January 2009


In 2002  this compilation was released and it contains a 2nd disc full of remixes

Lo3ve And Ro3ck3ets-Ear3th · S3un · M3oo3n

                                                  Lo3ve And Ro3ck3ets-Ear3th · S3un · M3oo3n

This, their 3rd album.is wrought with emotive acoustic arrangements, accentuated by Daniel Ash's and David J's  vocals.

David J had the more deadpan delivery while daniel ash had the more melodic voice and more range. that, however, made the band that much better.
earth, sun, moon' saw the band pull the reigns in on their trademark sound without abandoning their identity, all the while expanding their pallet and creating their definitive album.
'earth, sun, moon' was arguably l&r's artistic peak, demonstrating a range previous unseen in earlier albums. it walks the fine line between artistic credibility and commecial success

. 'no new tale to tell' proved to be a massive college hit, and understandably so. the 'wooo wooo WOOO wooo' intro is a definite ear-catcher and strangely appropriate intro. 'no new tale to tell's' outro is one of the finer outros your likely to hear, especially with daniel ash's trademark guitar burning up the background: 'when your up, it's a long way down, when you're down, it's a long way up. it's all the same thing, no new tale to tell.' existentialism, for some reason, always sounds better in a catchy melody.

Even though Express is hailed as their most popular, This is more consistent and more enjoyable..

Sorry for lack of posts . Have had dose of the flu.
gettin better


Flaunt It is the debut album by British band Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
Its a great fun album

The album featured a remix of their #3 UK hit single[2] "Love Missile F1-11", as well as "21st Century Boy". Flaunt

It was unique in that the band sold spots between songs for advertisements. Ultimately, ads for L'Oréal, i-D magazine,
the short-lived London pirate television station NeTWork 21,

and London's Kensington Market clothing shop Pure Sex were complemented by fictitious ads for the Sputnik Corporation and the (unreleased) Sigue Sigue Sputnik Computer Game; a spoken word advertisement (narrated by the Sputnik Corporation voiceover) for EMI closes the album.

All original CD versions and the version released in Germany also include an ad for Tempo, a lifestyle magazine

 The liner notes include small print ads for the various advertisers, as well.

No Sense of Sin is the debut studio album of English band The Lotus Eaters.

It contains their popular single, "The First Picture of You", released the previous year., it is stylish, achingly melodic, and angst tidden with real life pitfalls

This is definitely one of the most underrated albums of the '80s

A reissue of the original version of The Lotus Eaters’ debut album, originally released in 1984 was reissued in 2010

This reissue contains 9 extra tracks not avail on original release. I added the 12" of The First Picture of You as it isnt included....

This release features 3 tracks he co wrote with Faithfull Faithfull: "Guilt", "Broken English" and "Times Square".

Ir3o3n Cu3rta3in - De3sertio3n



This is in my top 10 albums of all time hahah I had it on tape bk in the day. decades ago. cost me a buck. it got pinched i never managed to get another copy til 9 yrs ago i got it on cd from discogs

This band should have been HUGE. theyre really that good. FANTASTIC!

Iron Curtain were a minimal wave band from Santa Barbara, CA, who played regularly in the Los Angeles underground music scene.
They were heavily influenced by The Cure, OMD, Joy Division, and Kraftwerk.
There's alot of Martin Rushent in there as well. so many influences (82-85ish Blancmange???) but the sound is their own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The band released several records in small quantities even though they had a great fan base,
and hence over the years these releases have gained mass cult appeal which has driven the prices of used copies up into the thousands.

2007 Pylon remastered this release from the original ananlog masters.
BRILLIANT

if yr still reasdin this... why? go get it

Fie3lds of the Ne33phil3im - Da3w3nraz3or

Fields of the Nephilim are an English gothic rock band formed in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England in 1984.
The band's name refers to a Biblical race of giants or angel-human hybrids, known as the Nephilim.
Although they have not received substantial mainstream success, the band's seminal sound has proved highly influential, especially in the genre of gothic rock
Dawnrazor is the debut studio album by English gothic rock band Fields of the Nephilim.
It was released in May 1987, through record label Situation Two.
The original line-up consisted of vocalist Carl McCoy, saxophonist Gary Wisker, Tony Pettitt on bass, guitarist Paul Wright and drummer Alexander "Nod" Wright.
After the release of the debut EP Burning the Fields, Wisker left the band and was replaced by Peter Yates as second guitarist to become what is widely known as the 'classic' line-up.

The current incarnation of the band has released one authorized recording of new material and one double live album since 1990, but the group still perform frequently, with only Carl McCoy and Tony Pettit remaining from the original lineup.

Great debut and 1 of my all time favs from the band .. this has bonus tracks not avail on orig release.

Ho3ward Dev3oto Jer3ky Ver3sions of t3he Drea3m

Ho3ward Dev3oto Jer3ky Ver3sions of t3he Drea3m

Jerky Versions of the Dream is the only solo album recorded by Howard Devoto, the original singer of Buzzcocks and Magazine.
 It was his only studio album, which was released at the time with two singles, "Cold Imagination" and "Rainy Season",
It was to be a short-lived solo career for Devoto, who in 1986, went to form a band alongside guitarist Noko, which later was named Luxuria.

The process of Devoto's solo album began, shortly after the demise of Magazine. Already frustrated by an unsatisfactory string of replacements for guitarist John McGeoch, Devoto left the group after the pre-album single to Magic, Murder and the Weather had failed to chart.
Devoto started to write songs during 1982, later making a demo with guitarist Alan St Clair and a drum machine.He also started working with his former Magazine bandmate Barry Adamson.
Eventually, Devoto decided to combine the two projects and record a solo album, instead.

All the contemporaneous non-LP and b-sides are added as bonuses for the first time on this 2007 remaster.
You get the 7" version of "Rainy Season," which was perfectly edited and remixed, as well as its instrumental b-side, "Rainforest mixed in a dubby style, but with some imagination, and the extended version of "Cold Imagination," which adds only 48 seconds to the album version, but has a punchier mix.

You also get the entire three-song Peel session from 1983.and as a special bonus never before released, this radio session features three album tracks in somewhat different arrangements from the album versions.

 Jer3ky Ver3sions of t3he Drea3m really is an outstandin album.

Cl3an Of Xy3mo3x  The Jo3hn P3eel Se3ssio3ns
the band were thrilled to be invited to the UK to record for Peel as gettin a song played on radio 1 was the epitome of success. Peel was a mythical figure in those days and a great discoverer of new bands however recording for John Peel for the Clan Of Xymox was a strain as when they arrived to record for Peel,they were informed 1-they had 4 hours to record it and their plugs on their equipment had to be changed so they were compatible with uk power and this could only be done by a BBC technician
this took a hour off their recording time, they now had only 3 hours to get it right and get it right  they did.everything was mixed later that evening by 2 BBC engineers and they never got to meet the great man himself
This is a great recording and Stranger is my fav song on this. if you could wear a CD out by playin it , well ya couldnt play track 1 hahah i play it on repeat for hours hahahah
however the tracks on this mini album were recorded on 2 different dates not one

tracks 1-3 were produced by Mark Radcliffe and engioneered by Mike Robinson on the 4th of August

tracks 4-6 recorded on the 3rd November 1985 , produced by Dale Griffin and engineered by Mike Shilling
