The The – Twilight Of A Champion

It’s been 30 years since Matt Johnson’s ‘Infected’ album, which makes many of us feel old. However, for some, ‘Infected’ had the impact that Johnson’s ‘Soul Mining’ had for others. The whole thing is a tough Pop confection; like the flip side to what Jim ‘Foetus’ Thirlwell (Johnson’s friend and labelmate at this time) was doing on albums such as ‘NAIL’. Indeed, the first minute is pure Thirlwell; all horn stabs and clattering rockabilly, before it becomes an Electro-Pop number The The style. Enjoy.
