You know when you listen to an album and you know half the tunes on there but never knew who they were by and what they were called? No? Maybe it’s just me then.
This just happened to me with The Teardrop Explodes’ awesome Kilimanjaro LP. I have no idea when I heard all of these songs as I don’t ever recall listening to these guys before (although they have been on my “list of bands who sound interesting and I should probably check out” for a while). Top 80s “psychedelic” post punk/new wave/indie/whatever from Julian Cope et al. Listen.
Great moody ambient indie from way back in 1980. Headed by awesome nutter Julian Cope The Teardrop Explodes made some wicked post punk goodness. Love the beatless(ish) vibe on this one, really need to explore their back catalogue a bit further and discover a few more gems!
This comes from the “Killamanjaro” album which apparently originally going to be called “Everyone Wants To Shag The Teardrop Explodes”. I think we can agree that this is a much better title!
