Wasted Youth - Rebecca's Room 7", 1981
Wasted Youth - Rebecca's Room/Things Never Seem The Same 7", 1981
Another Martin Hannett produced thing. Look how goth the sleeve looks! (*smiling from ear to ear*) I think the A-side of this is another thing fans of The Sound should hear.
Seriously, I enjoyed hearing this single again a lot more than I thought I would. The instrumental b-side is sorta like Gary Numan, but the A-side is actually quite nice and catchy. I felt like I was in high school again when I heard that. Yes there are synths here. Who *didn't* have them in 1981, right?
And look how much that logo on the second inner label looks like Volkswagen! Oh my god! I think it's bloody wonderful, me.
