'Genkai Wa Doko Da' was the last Gauze record of the '80s. Its a belter, of course. Sit back and implode
This sounds shambolic but don't let them fool you. Their first release was also the first release on Fast Product.
On this demo they sounded like Johnny And The Self Abusers even though they had changed their name to The Simple Minds. It finally got a well-overdue release on 'The Early Years 1977-78' CD.
The superior flipside of sole 7" 'Safe And Warm'.
The first full-length Pixies album 'Surfer Rosa' starts slowly but then explodes into life with this incestuous little ditty.
A nice bit of ska now. Their debut single.
Another ska-tastic tune. Their third 7".
From their 'Dezember' E.P. Read all about it here.
The opening track from the 'Backstreet Boys' E.P.
Another bi-lingual effort from 'Surfer Rosa'. 'Rosa, oh-oh-oh-oh, Rosa, Rosa!'
A second track from 'Genkai Wa Doko Da'. Blistering stuff.
Another track from their first demo.
This Four Seasons cover was the sole release by Ms Massey who had roles in quite a few John Waters films, if I remember. Lots and lots of fun.
One from their debut 'Apeman' E.P.
My girlfriend used to take the piss out of this song relentlessly, mainly referring to the backing vocal, which dumbfounded me no end as the whole thing is clearly a masterpiece.
A third track from 'Genkai Wa Doko Da'. More consistently brutal than their previous twocords.
An ode to punk rock. The title track from his first E.P.
A third track from their 1977 demo.
Another from the 'Dezember' E.P.
A fourth from 'Surfer Rosa' which is all about the magnificent guitarwork of Joey Santiago.
A fourth from 'Genkai Wa Doko Da'.
Another track from the 'Backstreet Boys' E.P.
Their third single and first release on Virgin. The deal didn't last.
From their second E.P. 'Everyone has dyed their hair, everyone's ironed their bondage suits'.
A fifth from 'Surfer Rosa' which was also their first single, albeit a 12" E.P. Should have been a massive hit.
33. SIMPLE MINDS - 'Little Bitch'
