It would impossible to pick 5 definite favorites but I did pick 5 albums I have played a lot recently and absolutely register as works of art. Our engineer on Dangerous Connection word to D Son! I was familiar with the name but not the music too much.
This album and basically their entire catalog balances a perfect level of original and soothing. This may definitely be one of my favorite albums in any genre hands down.
Just unbelievably unique. Especially for when it came out. This definitely treads heavily on the hip hop line but back then you would not find it in the same section as Poor Righteous Teachers at Sam Goody so I think it fits on this list.
This album, like the my next choice on this list, belongs in its own world. All the songs have a common denominator that make it so specific to this band and the album. Should be a good one. Release Date November 27, Track Listing.
Soft Cell. Tainted Love. Ed Cobb. Seedy Films. Sex Dwarf. Entertain Me. A superb example of storytelling, its lyrics immediately conjure up striking imagery, particularly the opening line of standing outside the Pink Flamingo in the rain, desolate and desperate.
After hitchhiking to Leeds to see Soft Cell live, Stevo, impressed by their show, offered them an opportunity to have a track featured on a compilation album he was putting together for the Some Bizzarre label as well his services as their manager.
Despite having hundreds of self-penned tracks to choose from, it was decided that a cover would be the best option to gain some momentum for the band. By far the most controversial music video to date and one that remains clouded in mystery due to its scarce availability. A heavily cut and censored version is available online. Bedsitter was a step away from the shock tactics as everything was implied rather than illustrated.
No sooner had Soft Cell made it big, Marc discovered the glamour and fame of being a pop star was a veneer behind which hid a myriad of problems — and being instantly recognisable came with many pitfalls. An openly gay man, Marc was subjected to vile homophobia in the press and in the street.
People found us really threatening. I had more of a rock edge, mixed with 80s electro. And when we chose our cover versions, we chose a gritty old soul number, or Born To Lose by Johnny Thunders. But there was a lot of hate directed towards us. I still lived in Leeds at the time, and it became very frightening to live there. A respite from the vitriol directed at them came with the band dispatched to New York to finish work on their debut album with producer Mike Thorne.
That was how it evolved, really. We had a really good backlog of stuff that we wanted to get out.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Vinyl release of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret on Discogs.
