fly in the ointment

HAR 5151.

Bridging the gap deftly between 1977's "Pink Flag" and their 1978 follow-up, "Chairs Missing", this is the sound of a breakfast hangover overspilling into the studio with unspeakable flair.

A lot of good art - like disease - is born in the kitchen, I firmly believe.

Colin Newman: vocals; Robert Gotobed: drums; Bruce Gilbert: guitar; Graham Lewis: bass.

Written by Colin Newman and Graham Lewis. Produced by long term collaborator, Mike Thorne.
