The Danse Society – Re-ups and additions. (Christmas Present 3)

ds

Follower Christo wanted some Danse Society re-upping and I had a quick look through my blog and found only 3 posts featuring them!! I have way more than that so I thought I’d do a special post featuring all the vinyl from this influential and ground breaking band.

Formed in Barnsley, (Yorkshire) England in 1980. The original line-up included Steve Rawlings (voice), Paul Nash (guitar), Lyndon Scarfe (keyboards), Tim Wright (bass) and Paul Gilmartin (drums). Lyndon Scarfe was replaced by David Whitaker (formerly of band Music for Pleasure) after the Heaven is Waiting Album. They split up in 1986 and have since reformed, split then bizarrely split into 2 groups!

As of 2015, two versions of the Danse Society exist:

With female lead: Paul Nash (guitar), Maethelyiah (voice) Jack Cooper (bass), Ian Hunter (drums), Sam Bollands (keyboards)

With male lead: Paul Gilmartin (drums), Ade Clark (bass), Elliott Wheeler (guitar), Darran Guy (keyboards) and J Cridford (voice) – and each of them published a new record!

 

So in chronological order (of the stuff I have by them) so you can see how they eventually morphed into a bit of a Commercial Rock band from Indie Goth/ Post Punk beginnings.

      1. Hi, I see the re-post of the “Say It Again” 2×12 Gatefold but not the “Say It Again (Special Edition Club Mix) (12″)”. Can you please re-post that one? Thank you!!

  1. Hi Jedredy,
    Thanks for the re-up of 2000 Light Years From Home, my teenage years favorite, too bad the other Society links are down.
    also, love your taste in music, don’t know what we’ll do without it.
    Julian.
