A few obscure 80’s bands today.
The Cry was a short-lived band project by ex- Fischer Z frontman, John Watts. I quite liked Fischer Z, a bit of a cult new wave band, their album “Going Deaf For A Living” (from 1980) is well worth a quirky listen.
Included in the line-up was the original Fischer Z bassist, David Graham. Joining him was Mike Benn and Theo Thunder (the drummer perhaps?) What you get it sleek 80’s New Wave with a horn section and female backing vocals, (why oh why?) more Springsteen’s New Jersey than Watt’s Harrow. Produced with Richard Manwaring it is far too slick and polished, the B-side is much more in the style with Fischer Z, not a bad track at all with its Talking Heads style.
