MARTIAN DANCE - have landed...again!
This ones for Longy and his Punk Friction, who posted the bands debut single The Situation a while back. Martian Dance were a relatively short lived band from the early 80’s, blink and you’d have missed ‘em. They had a sound that was close to Adam and The Ants, and crossed that Post Punk New Romantic divide, if there’d been any justice in Thatcher’s Britain, (which there wasn’t) they would have been as popular as Duran Duran, instead they disappeared without trace. Thanks go out to Pete for making these recordings available. First up here is the bands Peel Session from 1980, followed by their second one from 1981, and finally there’s a live show from The Marquee in Nov 1980. Enjoy! and if you’ve got anything else Martian related, get in touch with Pete over at their myspace page, cos he’d love to hear from ya, there's also an interview with the band over on the excellent No Class fanzine web page that's worth a read, as is the rest of the stuff there.
