The Thought - self titled album, 1982
The Thought - The Thought LP, 1982
I bought this LP about 4 years ago and liked it at the time, but haven't played it since and I'm rather stunned at what I hear now. Fans of The Sound should hear this. Synthesizers are here, too. Good old fashioned gloomy, doomy, weird post punk. I love it. And I am going to get that other record of theirs soon that appeared on a major label because I can just about see the sleeve in my mind from seeing it in record stores way back when.
This record I link to here sortof sounds like Wire at times - "Atlanta Threat"...there's something about the guitar on that that reminds me of Sad Lovers & Giants too! There's a specific song I'm thinking of by SLAG right now from "Feeding The Flame"...(god that album kills me - talk about Goth)
The Thought were a Dutch band. That's about all I know about them.
I would be interested to know what other folks think of this record.
Also, I acknowledge the flaws in the sleeve here as I have posted it but I couldn't get around those flaws. If I'd tried to fix them it would have forced me to leave out other cool things about the sleeve, so I didn't touch it.
I've got a Dif Juz gig that would knock your socks off.
