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.

In 1976, Reynolds joined Marianne Faithfull's band, beginning a writing partnership that initially produced songs "Broken English" and "Why Do You Do It?", which attracted the attention of Island Records' founder Chris Blackwell who then signed Marianne in 1978 and released the album Broken English the following year.
In 1980, Reynolds joined Sly and Robbie, Wally Badarou, Mikey Chung and Uziah "Sticky" Thompson, aka the Compass Point Allstars, a studio band Blackwell created and named after his Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas to produce albums by Grace Jones, Joe Cocker and Black Uhuru among others
In 1982 he then released his first solo album I Scare Myself recorded with the Allstars, namely Sly and Robbie, Wally Badarou, Mikey Chung and Uziah "Sticky" Thompson with Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths singing backing vocals on two tracks
This release features 3 tracks he co wrote with Faithfull Faithfull: "Guilt", "Broken English" and "Times Square".

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

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

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

 her racist bullshit aside Nico stands  up there as 1 influential artist. well for me anyhow
Camera Obscura is the sixth solo album and seventh studio album by German singer Nico, featuring the backing band the Faction. It was recorded in March–April 1985 and released later that year by Beggars Banquet Records.
 It was produced by John Cale, marking their first studio collaboration since The End... in 1974.
 It was Nico's final studio album before her death three years later.
Camera Obscura' is a marvel, with Cale's production, her vocals and harmonium,
James Young's keyboards and electronic percussionist Graham Dids, and English jazz-fusion legend Ian Carr on trumpet on two tracks, it's as minimal and claustrophobic as anything else she'd done with Cale.
It begins with the title track, an instrumental born in the studio that seems improvised, but its dankness and uncertainty set the mood of the album rather nicely.
 Her version "My Funny Valentine" is the first amazing thing on the album, haunting, unsettlingly beautiful,
Carr's trumpet soloing works nicely against her voice. Even though her vocals work well within the context of the electronics, which now sound bit dated , an unavoidable situation that also afflicted Cale's album, but it's no less charming for it.
With "Fearfully in Danger" and "My Heart is Empty" you can kind of see where Nico's life was at,
and with "Fearfully..." you're almost convinced she's not going to show up, after a full three and a half minutes pass before her vocals come in.
1 song in particular  Fearfully in Danger is so Gary numanish
outstanding album from outstanding artist. still influential and always will be

A Broken Frame is the second studio album by the English electronic band Depeche Mode, released on 27 September 1982 by Mute Records.
The album was written entirely by Martin Gore and recorded after the departure of Vince Clarke, who had left the band to form Yazoo with singer Alison Moyet.
 Alan Wilder was part of a second tour in the United Kingdom occurring prior to the release of this album, but he had not officially joined the band yet, and thus, does not appear on the album.

Dave Gahan sings lead vocals on all songs except "Shouldn't Have Done That" which is a duet with Gore. "Nothing to Fear" and "Further Excerpts From: My Secret Garden" are instrumental.

 A Broken Frame is very unique atmosphere, dark, brooding, and meloncholy album. It made an extreme break from Speak & Spell, which altho a classic album lacked depth. this compensates big time.. referred to as their dark phase, i disagree- i think having Gore as main songwriter works as he finally has a free rein to deliver DM best album based on real experiences.. and they have

Immunity is a solo album by Rupert Hine.
Originally released in 1981, re-released and digitally remastered in 2001. The album was dedicated to Liam Byrne.
The song "Misplaced Love" features a brief chorus by British singer Marianne Faithfull.
This album is 1 of those albums that is made to be listened to in its entirety , track after track til it is finished,
Hine spins tales and visions that are surreal, full of tension, and enjoyably wierd.
Hine's lyricist is Jeannette Obstoj and as a result the lyrics are disturbing and bleak.
Drumming is by Phil Collins and Marianne Faithfull makes an appearance on Misplaced Love
I have never got tired of this album. this edition has 2 extra tracks on it.

23 tracks taken from the seven albums Tom released on Island from 1983 to 1993
Tom Waits pulled off a neat trick with the 1983 release of Swordfishtrombones: he disengaged himself from the present (and his own recent achievements) and allied himself with the past. And yet no one could accuse him of becoming mired in nostalgia.

A decade before the phrase lo-fi gained favor, Waits purposely ravaged his songs by moulding them into peculiar shapes and utilizing arcane instruments and recording techniques to further mould them into new kinds of aural sculptures.
The result was a genuine musical breakthrough. Beautiful Maladies gathers 23 tracks from Waits's seven post-Swordfishtrombones Island LPs.
These pretty/ugly tracks provide a riveting view of Tom's wild years.
While at least four Waits Island titles qualify as essentials, Beautiful Maladies and the 1988 live set, Big Time, provide compact introductions to a matchless body of work. -

His troubled ballads and the early southern blues elements
His earlier work was trying too hard to be some kind of 40s/50s throwback.
This 80s era was my favorite with minimal accompaniment, some wacky lyrics and all kinds of great vocal on the growl scale.

Fine collection of some of his best work and a great introduction to those unfamiliar with this superb craftsman @ the top of his game

F3r3ida D3ju3pa A3n3de3rta3g

F3r3ida D3ju3pa A3n3de3rta3g (FRIDA DEEP BREATHS)

Her 5th and final album to date released in 1996
After a brief hiatus and a few years in the early 1990s, as chairperson for the Swedish organisation, "Det Naturliga Steget-Artister För Miljön" (The Natural Step-Artists For The Environment), Frida decided to record a mature album with lyrics dealing with both "inner personal environment" as well as the environment and the nature's surroundings.

Frida's composition, "Kvinnor Som Springer" ("Women Who Run"), was inspired by the book "Women who Run with the Wolves", by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
It is one of the few songs she's written in her entire career, including 'Don't Do It', from Shine.
At the time of recording, Frida did not want the attention an international release would bring
Frida originally asked Agnetha Fältskog to record "Alla mina bästa år" with her, but Agnetha declined citing fear of ABBA reunion rumours.

 The recording session began on 18 March 1996 and was completed on 9 August 1996.

The album was recorded in Swedish. A one-hour documentary of the making, video clips and recording of this album, broadcast by Sveriges Television, titled 'Frida – mitt i livet', can be seen on the DVD set, Frida – The DVD, including interviews with Frida and producer Anders Glenmark

This is her best solo album.  Every song is sung in Swedish and i dont have a clue re wtf she is signing about but her voice sounds amazing,Her voice sounds mature and seems to me a personal album.

2005 remaster contains 3 bonus mixes

Ya3zo3o Yo3u An3d M3e B3ot3h

You and Me Both is the second and final studio album by British synthpop duo Yazoo, released on Mute Records in July 1983.

The album's title was an ironic reference to the fact that the duo weren't getting along  as Vince had never intended for Yazoo to last longer than 1 album ,therefore  they announced their split a few weeks before the album's release and that was that for a few decades

You and Me Both is a record of loss, yearning, warmth, anger and defiance, and it stands as one of 1983's major achievements stated the  NME.
Not bad considering the album was recorded under a cloud , the duo had grown estranged from each other and recorded much of the album separately and 2 weeks before album release had announced the split of the band

Album hit number 1 in NZ on album charts. while single Nobodys Diary hit the top 20.
Vinyl rip- i feel all CDS are missing the warmth this album permates and sounds quite sterile

Even though I followed both artists and still do - I dont think either have recorded anything as brilliant as this. o apart from their double live album when they reconvened a few years ago and did a select few dates........

Floating into the Night is the debut studio album by the American dream pop musician Julee Cruise.
It was released on September 12, 1989 on Warner Bros. Records

Cruise's vocals on Floating into the Night feature heavy use of digital reverb.
Cruise regarded herself as "a Broadway belter" and had a reputation in her earlier career for letting "angry and aggressive emotions power her work".
However, Lynch "felt that Cruise had a 'soft, sad side'" and encouraged her to sing in a softer tone and in a higher register;

Cruise's vocal style on the album has been often regarded as "ethereal" and drawn comparisons to Elizabeth Fraser on the earlier releases by the Cocteau Twins

Featuring music composed by Angelo Badalamenti and lyrics written by David Lynch, an instrumental version of "Falling" was used as the theme song for the ABC television series Twin Peaks.

2 singles were released 1st single Falling" is a song by the American dream pop singer Julee Cruise.&. Rockin' Back Inside My Heart.

Got into top 20 album charts here. due to a instruemental version of Falling which was used as Theme song in >>>> . TWIN PEAKS

Seasons change and so does my music tastes.

T3he S3ke3pt3ics Am3alga3m
The Skeptics were a New Zealand post-punk band active from 1979 to 1990.Their music combines 'traditional instrumentation with electronic and machine-based rhythm and sound.'
The Skeptics were pioneers in recording with electronics in New Zealand and as such commanded a devoted following through their experimental and innovative musical form.
The Skeptics were formed in Palmerston North out of a group of 6th form high school students.


Band Members:
David D'Ath (vocals, samples) 

Nick Roughan (bass, samples)
Don White (drums, percussion, samples) 

John Halvorsen (guitar) 
Robin Gauld (guitar)

The Skeptics' first recording appeared in 1982 on The Furtive Four Three Piece Pack a 12" compilation EP which also featured The Bongos, The Dabs and The Prime Movers.
They toured New Zealand on the Furtive Records "Three Piece Pack" tour. The tour was to be followed by a five track EP, Pyronnists Selections which was to be released on Propeller Records, Furtive's parent label, but the master tape was stolen from the Propeller office and the EP was never released.

 In 1983, Skeptics released the EP Chowder Over Wisconsin on Flying Nun Records.From 1983-1984 they ran their own club, thanks to support from the City Council arts centre, in a former electrical warehouse in Palmerston North.
They named the club Snailclamps after a chalk inscription they found in the warehouse, "C164 Snail Clamps". Initially the venue ran as an underage hangout but became a fully licensed venue not long after, until the band decided to pack up and relocate to Wellington.
The band toured all over NZ for next couple of years also workin on EPs and albums.


While working on this album Amalgam in 1989, David D'Ath learned that he had leukaemia.
D'Ath never got to see the finished product which, due to many unforeseen problems and delays, could not be finished in time as a farewell to this legendary performer.
He died on Tuesday, 4 September 1990.
The band ceased immediately after.

The album was finally released in November 1990.
\Great band. First time I seen them live was in 1983 @ Cafe De Paris in Palmey . Pretty awesome gig it was 2  :P

In 2016 Nick Roughan and Brent McLachlan are recording engineers, running their own studios: McLachlan in New York and Roughan in New Zealand. Don White is based in Melbourne, and John Halvorsen is based in Wellington and still active musically

Tra3sc3h Fl3ou3rish & De3c3ay

Hope you're enjoying the NZ music buffet !!!!!

Trasch formed in Wellington during the tail-end of the eighties, becoming arguably the first New Zealand band to create muscular industrial/EBM in the vein of Front 242 and Front Line Assembly

Wellington trio Trasch were local electronic music pioneers, built around the synth and programming skills of two moonlighting Radio NZ audio engineers, Evan Roberts and Mike Young.
Vocals were provided by Arthur Tauhore, formerly of Wellington band Bump'n Ugly and also known to Roberts and Young, as the man who cut their hair.(and he also cut mine bahahaha and had been a dear friend since 1981 )

Flourish and Decay included covers 'Who Killed Mr. Moon Light' (Bauhaus) and 'Papa Was A Rolling Stone' (The Temptations).
When Trasch played Wellington's Paisley Park, they called the venue to say they'd be an hour late as they'd been in an accident. "They announced it over the PA and everybody said, 'oh no'," said Young. "We'd been with a friend of ours who does latex makeup for films and we turned up with open cuts and gashes all over our faces and Arthur's bald head had a bit of brain poking out." and thats how they turned up to the gig hahahahaha.
I saw them live in 1993 @ Wgtns Carpark venue before the yuppies took over and turned it into a fukin winebar.

OUTSTANDING GIG

Sadly Trasch dissolved after the premature death of Arthur Tauhore in November 1994.
I havent played this since oh 1994. and prob wont play again. It is now digitized and on my ipod :)

The Bats are an influential New Zealand rock band formed in 1982 in Christchurch by Paul Kean (bass), Malcolm Grant (drums), Robert Scott (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards) and Kaye Woodward (lead guitar, vocals).
Though primarily a Christchurch band, The Bats have strong links to Dunedin and are usually grouped in with the Dunedin Sound musicians that emerged in the early 1980s.
 The band has retained the same four members from 1982 to the present day. they have extended breaks between albums and focus on raising families and other musical projects,
that is probably the reason why they've endured since 1982 stated vocalist Robert Scott.They've recorded 9 full length albums, 7 EPS and a few singles..

The 3Ds were an alternative pop/rock band based from Dunedin, New Zealand, together from 1988 to 1997. They recorded three albums and several EPs, the best known of which is The Venus Trail (1993).
They achieved success worldwide, commercial and critical in the period 1992-95.
Formed in mid-1988, the New Zealand noise pop band 3D's comprised vocalist/guitarist David Saunders, bassist Denise Roughan (formerly of Look Blue Go Purple, and author of that group's big hit "Cactus Cat")
, and ex-Snapper drummer Dominic Stones.
 By the time 3D's made their live debut later in the year, their ranks also included guitarist David Mitchell.
The quartet first appeared with the track "Meluzina Man" on the popular Xpressway Pile-Up compilation, and in early 1990 recorded their debut EP, Fish Tales.
With both Saunders and Mitchell splitting their time in the Robert Scott-led Magick Heads, 3D's went on the back burner, with only the EP Swarthy Songs for Swabs appearing in 1991;
This is their debut album released in 1992, it hit no 24 in the album charts. It is a classic

Ab3le Ta3sm3a3ns - He3y, Sp3in3ne3r!

The Able Tasmans were an indie band from Auckland, New Zealand. At various times the band consisted of Leslie Jonkers, Peter Keen, Graeme Humphreys, Craig Mason, David Beniston, Jane Dodd (previously of The Verlaines), and Ronald Young. They formed in 1984 and named themselves after the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman. They released four albums and two EPs on Flying Nun Records. The band split up in 1996.

This, their second release called  Hey Spinner!, this obscure New Zealand group deliver some of their best upbeat Byrds-esque guitar pop on record. Of the five albums they produced in the late '80s/early '90s, the signature of their sound is the keyboard-driven melody, subtle acoustic arrangements, and propulsive rhythm section. The sound is quite close to a more folk-sounding Stereolab, with vocal harmonies from the Brian Wilson songbook. just SUPERB!

Recorded: At Mascot Studios, Auckland 1989. Engineered by Terry Moore. Produced by the Able Tasmans and Fred E. Rick.

Band Members: on this release: Leslie Jonkers, Graeme Humphreys, Craig Mason, Peter Keen, Jane Dodd and Ronald Young.

The Verlaines are a rock band from Dunedin, New Zealand. Formed in 1981 by Graeme Downes, Craig Easton, Anita Pillai, Phillip Higham and Greg Kerr, the band went through multiple line-ups.
The Verlaines were noted for their angular, "difficult" song structures, wordy and downbeat lyrics, unusual subject matter all contained in often frantic up-tempo playing. The Verlaines were led by songwriter and vocalist/guitarist Graeme Downes although many other New Zealand musicians played guitar, bass, drums and brass instruments during the different stages of the band. Downes is an academic at the University of Otago, where he is head of the Department of Music.

Hallelujah All the Way Home is the debut album by New Zealand group, The Verlaines. First released in 1985 by Flying Nun Records,

It actually hit no 50 in NZ album charts which in the 80s was very difficult for any ""Alterntive** band from NZ as commercial NZ radio refused to play NZ Music!!!! . Only Student Radio championed NZ music

One of the first electronic bands in New Zealand, and hugely influential,
The Body Electric were formed in 1982 by Alan Jansson, although he was credited on first releases as Alan Jimson, and Andy Drey.
During their initial rehearsals, they were then joined by actor-turned-singer Garry Smith.
The group's debut single, Pulsing, was picked up by radio programmers and spent 27 weeks in the charts. (not included on this album) ????
Not entirely indicative of their sound, the track has a novelty quality to it.
Following the success of Pulsing, Andy Drey was replaced by Spines bassist Wendy Calder and the group released two more minor hits (Dreaming In A Life and Imagination) and a full length album before splitting in 1984.

Jansson went into record production in Auckland and had a global hit with OMC in the 1990s, and Smith was later the manager of The New Zealand Ballet Company.

Car Crash Set were a pioneering New Zealand electronic band in the mid 80's formed by Nigel Russell (ex Spelling Mistakes/Danse Macabre), Dave Bulog, and Trevor Reekie, they combined cutting edge electronic sounds, guitar overdrive and feedback. The band released several singles as well as one album and EP.

Early Eighties synth pop dance alterno band which emerged almost instantaneously after the demise of DANSE MACABRE. Taking their influences from New Order, Suicide and DAF and their name from the last line of The Normal's song 'Warm Leatherette' later covered by Grace Jones, "join the car crash set", the band employed cutting edge electronic sounds, guitar overdrive and feedback and a uniqueness that gathered them a medium but loyal underground following.

The band existed for about 5 years (which was quite a record for a band back then)
The band toured extensively as well as playing several key supports for the likes of OMD, Shriekback, Hunters and Collecters.

The La De Das were a leading New Zealand rock band of the 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in New Zealand in 1963 as The Mergers, they enjoyed considerable success in both New Zealand and Australia until their split in 1975.The Mergers formed in late 1963 as a Shadows-style instrumental group and began playing local dances and school socials,
The group decided that "The Mergers" failed to reflect the toughness of their music, so began searching for another name. One promoter even changed their name to The Gonks for an early 1965 gig at a summer carnival. They decided on The Criminals, but Phil Key's mother was not impressed and after rehearsals one night at the Wilson house, she jokingly suggested instead that they call themselves "something nice, like the la-de-das ...". Key loved it and the name stuck.By early 1965 their weekend hobby had taken off and they were getting regular bookings on Auckland's booming dance circuitIn November 1965 they got a major break when they were called up to fill in at The Platterack. The La De Das went over well and were offered further bookings at the club. After Phil Key finished school in December, the band turned professional. The Platterack took on The Las De Das as the resident band, replacing the Dallas Four. The band received £12 per week and were soon packing out the club on a regular basis.[citation needed] It was here they linked up with one of the regular patrons, Bruce Howard, a classically trained keyboard player. Bruce auditioned at the next rehearsal and joined the band. He and Trevor Wilson became the creative core of the band, writing all their original material.
In January 1966 Stebbing was given an import copy of a Changin' Times album by Philips A&R man John McCready, and he immediately tagged the track "How Is The Air Up There?" as a possible song for a local band. The La De Das performed a demo, resulting in them cutting a recording and signing to Zodiac for both management and production, with their recordings distributed through Phillips. They recorded a series of hits through 1966-67,which are now regarded as classics of 60s R&B.Here are 28 of their best dittys

 Neil's Heavy Concept Album is a 1984 recording of songs and spoken comedy routines by British actor Nigel Planer, in character as the long-suffering hippie Neil from the BBC comedy series The Young Ones. Production, arrangements and keyboards are by Canterbury scene keyboardist Dave Stewart, who also plays guitar, bass and drums. Other players on the album include ex-members of bands such as Gong, Spooky Tooth and Level 42.
The front of the album sleeve is a loose parody of The Rolling Stones' Their Satanic Majesties Request album sleeve. The rear side is a parody of the Beatle's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, with Neil wearing different outfits replacing the images of the four Beatles, and the text "A heavy time is guaranteed for all." replacing "A splendid time is guaranteed for all."
The album followed the success of the Neil single "Hole in My Shoe" — a cover version of Traffic's 1967 hit – which reached number 2 in the United Kingdom.

Additional spoken tracks include Neil having a conversation with a potato in a sewer, reciting a poem to his rubber plant Wayne ("your roots are in the earth, mine are in Twickenham"), and experiencing a flashback in the track "Paranoid Remix" which features Beatles-esque backwards noises and voices, and ends with a parody of the last chord from "A Day in the Life". A parody horror movie commercial, which sees vegetarian Neil being turned into a carnivorous monster after accidentally eating a hamburger leads into the original Planer composition "Lentil Nightmare", a dark heavy metal number that quotes briefly from King Crimson's "The Court of the Crimson King" and features Planer singing in an uncharacteristic wailing, high falsetto. In the disco/rap number "Bad Karma in the UK", Neil's mother (played by musician Barbara Gaskin) admonishes him to watch his I Ching, chew his food eleven times, and remember his expectorant. "God Save the Queen" is performed as a cabaret number by a bad American standup comic.

Great comedy album and on Hurdy Gurdy Man  well listen to it- its on Side B..

Followup to last post, i thought id share a personal fav of mine .....
The 80s produced some amazing artists.
JCC was 1 of them.
Digitally remastered reissue of John Cooper Clarke's 1982 album.
This British Poet of Punk looked like Bob Dylan on smack,recited and spat out brilliant poetry like Mark E. Smith (The Fall).
As unique as any artist of the era, JCC would recite poetry over minimal musical backing (if any) and delights us with his witty rants and thought-provoking outlook on life
Zip Style was released in 1982 as the long awaited follow-up album to Snap, Crackle & Bop.<< Another classic
Receiving critical acclaim, it's unbelievable that it still remains his last official album to date. Again superbly backed by the music of the Invisible Girls.

Some fukwit had act dloaded the urgh AMW lp and then reported it where i had uploaded it too... and reported me thru my email...
my excuse was selling it and wanted a backup in case my pootah died,..,,, seems to have worked. theyve dropped prosecution after giving me warning bahah .....so fecku RIAA GESTAPO

Got a lovely email requesting some early SADE. and this is all I have as Sade aint really my thing but bk then when I got this yup and for some reason I kept it.... (in a banana box with hundreds of CD's old stuff)
went to discogs to get the cover for this and bam its worth a shitload hahahah
One of the rarest and valuable CDs I own. its worth a mint.
lets sell it and go to the pub bahah nah
Got it bk in 89 for $10.
