Soft Cell - Memorabilia (1981, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Friday, November 24, 2006, 06:41 PM - Music, - UK, English
Not the first single from Soft Cell as I thought, but the third as you can read on the Marc Almond site. Anyway the first 12" and a good one. About the neurotic side of travelling and a consumer nightmare. Musically well expressed. A 7 on the White Noise Scale.



Produced by Daniel Miller of the Normal and owner of Mute records.

Killing Joke - Nervous System (1979, UK, new wave/gothic) 
Wednesday, November 22, 2006, 06:29 PM - Music, - UK, English
The first, double B-sided, 10" of Killing Joke. Less 'heavy' than their later work, more dub-like.
It was not packed in a proper sleeve, just the front on a sheet of paper and some cards where included.



1 Nervous System [4:19]
2 Turn to Red [4:02]
3 Are you receiving? [4:55]

How come the first record of a band always is the best?



You can see them playing this song live on Granada TV 1978.
