The Blow Monkeys – Go Public! (12″)

gopublicbackcov The Blow Monkeys do a great impression of Blur/Suede with this early Indie thrasher. No, I’m not joking they did not start out tunes like the jazzy, “Digging Your Scene”, they were more guitar based with a just a smidgeon of saxophone. Produced by Pete Wilson (Style Council, Comsat Angels) it certainly opened my ears after many years. Must check out their debut album  “Limping for a Generation”, a forgotten classic. B-side “Rub-A-Dub-Shanka” is a bit more jazzy but weirdly listenable. The 12″ is exactly the same as the 7″, ahhhhhhh I hate that!
