All Lined Up

Bildergebnis für shriekback

In 1981 Barry Andrews formerly XTC and Dave Allen formerly member of Gang of Four formed Shriekback a band that had a little success on the dancefloor charts. They made a unique sound stamped by post-punk and mashed it up with the upcoming sound of dance music. I didn't listen to them for a long time and almost forgot that they ever existed until this song shuffled up a few days ago on my mobile phone. It is still a classic song that showed how post-punk and new wave could work when you turn into a danceable sound. What did we need more than a great bass line and some chanting vocals in a song in these times? Best of both worlds still after all these years and worth to be remembered after all these years.

A classic of the time Walter. It could've been recorded yesterday and doesn't sound dated at all. Great stuff.
