This Mortal Coil, It'll End in Tears

Okay, I should pull myself together and spit out some more of these review blurbs before my non-existent audience totally dries up. Picked up this little record at Buch Spieler last week. That's news, that BS has a renewed record selection, albeit about five years behind the curve. Anyway, they're trying, and their selection and prices weren't bad, so go support them.

This little platter is a pretty frickin' awesome supergroup-type thing from the 4AD label, circa 1984. A little goth, a little dirgy, very minimalist with great vocals, this is like Big Star's Third (two of whose songs are covered on it) played in a dank, dark, London S&M club.
