Lions & Ghosts – Contradiction (US 12″)

Another “Who Are These?” moment. Definitely for fans of INXS and Love & Rockets (probably why Mike bought it) and more in line with upsurge of psychedelic rock with the likes of bands like Jellyfish, Gene Loves Jezebel. From 1987 and mixing up dance beats and rock sensibilities these were a bit of a cult band in L.A, Rick Parker the singer is now a producer/ mixer . The “New York Mix”  and “Heavy Mix” were provided by Justin Strauss and Murray Ellias. Steve Churchyard, (The Stranglers producer) provides the “Psycho Dance” mix, the best of the bunch.

B-side is a live track called ,”Beneath The Joke” goth rock and sounding like The Mission! Pioneering stuff from an underrated band.
