Nearly forgot to post this up. The original 4 track debut E.P. by Figures On The Beach produced superbly by Ben Grosse it sounds amazing for 1983. “Swimming” reveals their Ultravox/Associates. “Feel Like Glass” has Cure influences with it slow, lilting beat. My favourite , “Decay” is almost Krautrock with its primitive synth sounds and E bow guitar. “Everything But Heaven” starts off like something by the Doobie Brothers and is funky dance track. Superb!
A recommended listen for any synth/New Wave fan.
THAT’S IT FOR TODAY. OFF TO SEE MY FOLKS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT BE BACK THURSDAY!
