Soft Cell – Bedsitter (12″)

I keep seeing this twelve inch whilst digging for twelves, I’ve had it for a long time so if you do come across a copy pick one up, it’s worth it.

The follow up to “Tainted Love” as with most Soft Cell 12″s you get extra verses, horn treatments, added synths and here Bedsitter treats us to an early Marc Almond rap, that anyone cool would recite whilst on the 80’s dancefloor. For me it’s all about the twangy synth and the crashing drum machine.

“Facility Girls” is much slower and very dark, with customary out of tune singing and telling you the full story over the 7 minutes.
