Another forgotten band from the early 80's is Bristol based post-punk band Maximum Joy. I remembered them a the recent days when I listened to Silent Dub again after a very long time. Someone described their music as The Slits backed with Gang Of Four and this wasn't totally wrong because it is female vocals over a fantastic bass lines, complex percussion and some horns. And I have to admit that I forgot them by releases of many other bands in this decade and after. But listening to their songs feels like a time travel back into the days when real music was made and a lot of people had open ears for new sounds.
