TOTALLY (NOT SO) RANDOM MUSIC POSTING #3























Today’s offering comes from ANOTHER PRETTY FACE, It’s a 2 Track 7” single from early 1980. It’s a corker! Described by Gary Bushel in a review in Sounds (Back in the day of 4 music weekly’s; NME, Melody Maker, Record Mirror and Sounds) as a cross between The Clash and Bruce Springsteen, he aint wrong there. Whatever Happened to the West is a guitar driven punk/pop attack of the West’s values, on the other hand Goodbye 1970’s is a laid back and more piano/saxophone cynical look back as the 70’s turned into the 80’s, a beautiful lament. Mike Scott the singer and guitarist later went on to find success with The Waterboys. Listening to this 20+ years later. ….Time moves on, but nothing changes, just gets worse. Do yerselfs a favour and check out this. A call to arms! captured on this vinyl rip, the crackles just add to its importance, and to top it all off the cover art is great. Get it here

Brilliant.

Always wanted to hear what Mike Scott sounded like before the Waterboys. Cheers for uploading this. Really appreciated.

Dear Mr. Wolf,

Thank you for ANOTHER PRETTY FACE.
Do you take Requests? If you do, it would be very kind to post the other Single, I`m after for Years:
"Heaven gets closer" (I`ve got "Boys love Carrie" somewhere in my Tape Archive, but this one seems unfindable...). Thank you anyway.
Greetings from Germany
Chris
