Devo – Make Me Dance [Demo]

A track that sadly did not make it onto 1980’s ‘Freedom of Choice’, as it’s a Devolution banger! All stiffened New Wave dance moves and minimal synth patterns.

The Fall – New Face In Hell

MES in full effect, with sloppy riffs and breakbeats bolstering his wonderful rantings. From the wonderful 1980 album ‘Grotesque (After the Gramme)’.

Bauhaus – Bela Lugosi’s Dead

This Post Punk anthem was a classic Goth favourite, and yet it had a real skank to it. Music really is a wonderful thing. 1982.

Talking Heads – Memories Can’t Wait

“These memories can’t wait”………..from 1979’s ‘Fear of Music’.

Pere Ubu – Caligari’s Mirror

Pere Ubu with David Thomas at his most abrasive. The track is dissonant and scattered; yet with a catchy chorus that rocks every time it kicks in. From their 2nd album, 1978’s ‘Dub Housing’.
