A Drop In The Gray – All The Same / Fall And Cry (Promo 12″)

droppedAnother obscure US New Wave band that I’d not a clue about. Formed in 1983 and releasing just the one album and a handful of singles. A Drop In The Gray hailed from L.A. and comprised of Scottish guitarist Colin Campbell, singer percussionist/singer Dan Phillips, Hans Christian and Martin Frederiksen (who both became very successful music producers). Coming on like Future Islands with very delicate piano the vocalist sounding like Mike Scott from The Waterboys. “Fall And Cry” has an even bigger chorus and rocky hook, with strident synths and The Alarm rallying call vocals.

  1. This is a superb album. By all means, get the full length. You won’t be sorry! Message me if you’d like a link to my rip.

    1. RA Feutz,
      Can you please post the link of your rip since this one
      is in a really bad quality.

      1. Explain bad quality?? Anyway, this sounded great before I sent it. Do not know what happened with this one you listened to as I have heard the same thing as well.

        This is clear, louder, and plays fine on my equipment/devices !! must be your end !!



      2. You need your ears washing out? This blog is not Spotify it’s people’s own private vinyl collection. Stop moaning and post something of your own, start your own blog and post something special instead of being a leech expecting everything on a silver tray!

  2. Have to agree, I really liked this album. I couldn’t believe they were from US, let alone L.A.!!

  3. All 80s New Wave/Synthpop is highly welcome, fabulous stuff!!!

  4. reupload please!! thank you

    1. There you go Tomas 🙂
