Jonathan Perkins – Silver Spurs,I’ll Lay My Silver Spurs (She’s Wrong) (12″)

mrperkinsWho ? (being wilfully obscure!)

I thought that….from 1983 and a slice of funky New Wave with sprinkle of synth. Mr Perkins was a session vocalist, one time member of XTC, I have already posted stuff by him as part of the alt.rock band , The Flame…..here………

He went on to work with Dave Stewart and The Spiritual Cowboys and more recently as the gothic rock of Jonathan Perkins Miss World.

Another obscure fact is this is an early engineering work by legendary producer of The Smiths and Blur , Stephen Street.

Back to the tracks, they all have a bit of a blues influence in them. Using members of Toyah band does give it a bit of a New Wave edge. The “Dub” version is a great standalone track.
