03/06/2002 A few not-so-well-known LP's
After doing the compulsive thing and cataloguing the records in a neat-and-tidy database, I feel like musing on four records from the 80's.
Record 1: The Comsat Angels - Fiction (1982) was released a few months prior to their first American release and the first exposure to the almost-mainstream with a re-recording from the 1983 Land's"Independence Day." The Comsat Angels started as a post-punk band but managed to add a slight rhythm to the record more like Duran Duran's first record. Recommended to anyone who likes the New Wave of 1980-1982.
Record 2: Teardrop Explodes - Kilimanjaro (1980) is the better release of the two by this band. A must-own for any Julian Cope fan.
Record 3: The Railway Children - Reunion Wilderness (1986) is on Factory Records but sounds closer to the early Echo & The Bunnymen LP's than the label's current roster. The entire record is above average which makes it harder to choose the track to play on this week's show.
Record 4: The Tenants - The Tenants (1983) is by a Canadian band that Epic Records hoped to make successful in the US. Like many bands from the north, success was limited only to the border cities. Once you get past the comparisons to The Police, the songs are interesting.
