The Thought - SECOND Self-Titled LP, 1985
The Thought - SECOND self-titled LP, 1985
I used to see this record in the record stores a lot back in the day. Probably a lot of used record bins. I don't think anyone actually BOUGHT this record back then (but again, I'm speaking from a purely U.S. perspective). Probably no one heard of it or knew what to make of it. I don't remember hearing a single song off this LP on the local college radio station, even if I can clearly remember hearing "There's A Boy" from the first album of these guys I posted earlier (also self-titled - what were they thinking? Two self-titled albums? Only Peter Gabriel can get away with that! Haha).
But you know what? It's actually really nice, this record, and avoids the pitfalls that so many good post-punk bands fell into starting in 1983. I like this record so much that as I said before, I kept forgetting to split the tracks, on both the first and second side. Another thing is I don't remember seeing a video for them...
"But no matter how hard I scream/people tied to music machines" This is some really good music.
And what about the totally fucked-up extended goth version of "Eight Miles High", huh? What a treat!!!! This band from the Netherlands could write pretty good tunes - "Out Of Oblivion". I fucking love this record. Sisters of Mercy with horns = "Maggie MacColl"
GOTH AS FUCK
Oh no! Calling all Comsat Angels fans, "Tonight Again" is for you.
I think "Rapture" does early Modern English proud.
