Easterhouse ‎– Come Out Fighting (US 12″)

From 1989 and some rocky pop stuff from debutantes on this blog, Easterhouse. A Manchester band with leftist political leanings. They were quite active on the scene in the 80’s their early sound wasn’t unlike a cross between the Chameleons and the Smiths. However, they only managed to release their second album, “Waiting For The Redbird” in 1989. By then the band had only one original member, Andy Perry after lots of bands splits.

Justin Strauss (with Daniel Abraham) tighten up the drums and chimes up the chugging guitars over the original production by Steve Lovell and Steve Power. The main mix is the only one with the vocals at it has a Springsteen feel to it.  Lots of ambient over dubs on the “Just Right Dub” (whale noises, it was 1989!) Bet his ex-band mates hated it, “coz he’s done a Billy Idol.”
