Pink Military - Blood & Lipstick (1979, UK, new wave/electronic) 
Monday, February 12, 2007, 06:58 PM - Music, - UK, English
Pink Military is a band Jayne Casey formed with Nicky Cool, after Big in Japan broke up. Their first release was a 7" live ep Buddha Waking Disney Sleeping. This is their first and only 12". Side one has up tempo songs and side two is more experimental. I Cry is very different from the lp version (which I post tomorrow) and gets an eight on the White Noise Scale.



1 Spell Bound [2:34]
2 Blood & Lipstick [3:54]
3 Clown Town [4:56]
4 I Cry [6:03]

The Danse Society - Womans Own (1982, UK, new wave/electronic) 
Tuesday, February 6, 2007, 09:38 PM - Music, - UK, English
This is the first record I bought from The Danse Society, and it was the reason why I purchased a lot of their other stuff. But the Womans Own 12" still is the best. Continent deserves a 6 on the White Noise Scale.



1 Womans Own [3:24]
2 Continent [4:39]
3 We're so happy [5:05]
4 Belief [4:29]

Rhythm of Life - Soon - Summertime (1981, UK, pop) 
Friday, January 26, 2007, 01:38 AM - Music, - UK, English
Between Josef K and his solo career, Pail Haig made two singles with Stephen Harrison under the name Rhythm of Life. To confuse us, Paul named his second solo album also Rhythm of Life.
The 7" I have is 1 and A sided, both simple pop songs.



A - Soon [3:00]
1 - Summertime [3:19]

Fashion - Product Perfect (1979, UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, January 23, 2007, 07:58 PM - Music, - UK, English
There are two versions of Fashion. This is the first version with singer/guitarist Luke James. The music at this time is a kind of scarce art rock. A synthesizer is used, but not to create a wall of sound as the later Fashion did. Luke's voice is unique.

And there are two versions of this lp. The second version included the single Steady Eddie/Killing Time, but is without Burning Down. And some titles were in French (vẽŗỳ şŧÿłîšħ). I made a combination of the two and added a song from the I.R.S. greatest hits vols.2+3 sampler I had on a cassette tape.

For years I was on the lookout for a cd of the early Fashion, I only found The Height of Fashion, from the later version. No hope it ever comes, I made it myself.

UPDATE:
Luke James mailed me telling that an official re-release on cd can be bought from his MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky, only $10 + $2.50 shipping. A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.


version 1

Single:
1 Steady Eddie [3:26]
2 Killing Time [2:36]

LP side one:
1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:10]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:41]
4 Burning Down [3:31]
5 Big John - Hanoi Annoys me - the Innocent [7:25]

LP side two:
1 Citinite [5:15]
2 Don't touch me [2:57]
3 Bike Boys [5:06]
4 Fashion [3:30]
5 Technofascist [3:35]

I.R.S. greatest hits vols.2+3:
24 Sodium Pentathol Negative [1:55]

What is missing is Wastelife, the b-side of the Citinite 7" and the Silver Blades single. Anyone?


version 2

2 Born To Lose
3 Cattle Call
4 Careless Love
5 Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town

A Certain Ratio - I need someone tonite (1983, UK, funk) 
Thursday, January 18, 2007, 06:38 PM - Music, - UK, English
Both songs on this 12" are not available on a regular A Certain Ratio cd.
The b-side is a rather pointless version of the Steve Wonder song Dont you worry bout a thing. It's exactly the same... But a nice curiosity.



1 - I need someone tonite [5:39]
2 - Dont you worry bout a thing [4:33]

Not shared anymore.

update:
I need someone tonite is available on cd I'd Like to See You Again.
