Not quite Goth but not quite Rock, a bit in-between. Flesh For Lulu have appeared on here before and this was from the album “Long Live The New Flesh”, from 1987, with a more commercial rock sound. At the time they were touring with Gene Loves Jezebel and P.I.L. in America, signing to Beggars Banquet and enabling them to record this at Abbey Road Studios with Mike Hedges on production. It reminds be of Blur’s “Park Life” in places and the track mixes baby crying with glam rock (??) a definite tribute to Marc Bolan and T Rex. B-sides in clude a fake “Live” track “Dumbest Thing” and the U2 sounding “Blue Sky” Sadly lead singer and guitarist, Nick Marsh, lost his battle with cancer in 2015.
