LE MAT - Waltz Of The Fool b/w E'vry Dream (7" Vinyl Rip)
Musically this 'ear blog has been going down the old skool punk road, with a few turns of some newer tunes for good measure, now for something a little different, I'm gonna be injecting a few more of these 80's tunes into the usual mix. Right then, yer first hit is LE MAT with this blinding bit of 60's tinged psychedelic rawk and roll. Released in Oct 82. Waltz Of The Fool was their only single, their only other release was an album also called Waltz Of The Fool. Both were released on the Television Personalities Whaam! records. These Southend boys were certainly no fools. They once supported Duran Duran on tour, but were asked to leave after only 8 dates. Rumour had it that they were so good that LeBons Boys were too scared to follow them on stage. Judge for yerselves, it's just a click away !!!!! I'm aware that the quality of this rip good be a bit better, but hey I'm just getting to grips with the software, so what the hell this is punk rock, and anything goes, plus I love this record so much and couldn't wait to hear it again. So yeah there are a few crackles and I could have equalised bits, I dunno you tell me, all ideas for best settings/effects to use for improving and cleaning up sound gratefully accepted. Thanks to Highlander over at Cactus Mouth Informer all future rips will be at bit rate of 192, so If you want better quality you tell me. One last thing, while tripping through my vinyl I thought blimey the 80's were a rich time for alternative genres of music, but society was a poor place with Thatcher in power. Now under New Labour society is presented as being richer, when the reality is that it's the same shit but we're sinking deeper in to it, and currently music is generally a lot poorer. So does this mean we need an even extremer form of governance in order for music to get better. Or is it all a matter of taste. Anyway step out of yer comfort zones and enjoy Le Mat.
