The Fall – Mr. Pharmacist

A song about chemical assistance from the one and only Mark E Smith. This is from The Fall’s “Bend Sinister” (1986) album, and is a cover of the wonderful 1966 track by The Other Half.

Suicide – Live at CBGB’s September 1986

Worth the entry price just to see Martin Rev’s threads. However, the music is also a reason to watch and listen; the whole energy and ramshackle No Wave Electro really makes you wish you were there.

Tracklist:

1. Dance

2. Devastation

3. Cheree

4. Love So Lovely

5. Rocket USA

Sun City Girls – Tell Me Something Good

Wanna hear a raucous, absurd Rock cover of a Rufus and Chaka Khan song? Well look no further than this cover from Sun City Girls 1986 LP/Cassette ‘Midnight Cowboys From Ipanema’.

The The – Harbour Lights

Lesser known track that was the B-Side to the 1986 single ‘Slow Train To Dawn’. This has all of the classic hallmarks of a Johnson track, and will hit that sweet spot for those that know.

Butthole Surfers – Whirling Hall Of Knives

Well, what a title! And, that guitar sound is just endless bliss. One from their 1986 album ‘Rembrandt Pussyhorse’.

News From Babel – Who Will Accuse

On News From Babel’s second album,1986’s ‘Letters Home’, they enlist the help of the one and only Robert Wyatt, who lends his inimitable style to a track which ranges from melancholic to skittery in a rather short space of time.

Chrystal Belle Scrodd – Split And Well Hung

A track from the 1986 compilation ‘Ohrensausen’ (with the likes of Nurse With Wound, Coil, H.N.A.S, and Smegma; where Diana Rogerson plays around with the lyrics to songs like ‘That Old Black Magic’ and mangles them along with the disjointed music. Her voice goes from sultry to terrifying; something people familiar with her work with Nurse With Wound will recognise. Fantastic, as ever.

Big Black – Bazooka Joe

“The Joe man is back”.

Arthur Russell – Let’s Go Swimming (Walter Gibbons Mix)

Some excellent alt-Electro moves from Arthur and Walter circa 1986. You know the drill.

Cassiber – Orphee’s Mirror/I Tried To Reach You

Two tracks from Cassiber’s 1986 album ‘Perfect Worlds’. The first one shows drummer and ReR-man Chris Cutler doing his octopus thing in amongst sampledelia and mashed up noise. The second track has singer Christoph Anders belting out a number in such an OTT fashion, it beggars belief.
