King Trigger – River (12″)

rivercovFrom 1982 and in the style of Bow Wow Wow via Tenpole Tudor. Think tribal drums and chanting in a psycho-billy style. I’d completely forgotten this little gem produced by Steve Lillywhite (U2) once heard never forgotten. Indie dance in the style of Pigbag

Band personnel were Trudi Baptiste on piano and vocals; Martyn Clapson on guitar and vocals; Ian Cleverly on percussion; Sam Hodgkin on vocals and Stuart Kennedy on bass and vocals. The 12″ version has slightly more dub elements. “Push Or Slide” has a bit more indie psychedelia but again has plenty of percussion, very Adam and The Ants.
