Funky New Wave from the female led Canadian band, The Parachute Club.
From 1983 and their debut release, the band line-up was Lorraine Segato on vocals and guitar, Lauri Conger on keyboards and vocals, Billy Bryans on drums, Margo Davidson on saxophone and vocals, Julie Masi on percussion and vocals, Steve Webster on bass and Dave Gray on guitar. Produced by the legendary Daniel Lanois (Eno collaborator) it does have the feel of more prog/funk new wave, particularly on the slower B-side “She Tell You”- it would make a great dub mix. So plenty of layered beats on the 12″ and shiny synths reveals an early feminist hit. Wonder if this will get a spin at Manchester Pride happening at this very moment.
