It really did all sound the same

April 22, 2010

The Edge of the EightiesI HAVE been listening to this album this week and was struck that a) most of the Chew Lips style new stuff sounds like late 1970s early 1980s electro bands I stupidly ignored and b) may be the rockists were right, it did all sound the same, originally.
This double bill from OMD and Our Daughter’s Wedding shows extraordinarily similar thinking from each band. OMD’s came first, that’s all I am saying.
It’s a tremendous album with some tracks I had never heard of (Telex  Moskow Diskow anyone? Brilliant) and which have bridged the generation gap between Mrs GM (undisclosed) and Miss GM (9).
