From 1984 and the weirdest cover you will ever hear! James Brown gets the Flying Lizards treatment which means disjointed, sampled noise, spoken posh girl vocals and humour. Sparse minimalism! This was the last release from the David Cunningham studio project “The Flying Lizard” ; it featured the deadpan voices of Michael Upton (R.I.P. -a painter and contemporary of David Hockney) and Sally Peterson (famous voice over artist) “Flesh & Steel” is even more avant garde, drum machines, voice and orchestral samples; the sound of artists getting to grips with the, then, amazing possibilities of samplers. Pioneering stuff !
