Most people know their 80s one-hit-wonder The Future’s So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades - but anyone know their other stuff? I had the album Edge of Allegiance (until some smackhead stole it from me), and this is a seriously good album.
Great songwriting, gritty performance, excellently constructed political lyrics.
Highlights for me include: Waves of Grain, which was horribly prescient re. hijackings; Grand Old Party - catchy, brutal, and amusing; Standard White Jesus and Dirty Dirty Rice also should get a mention.
Unfortunately, their albums seem to be out of print. It’s a shame, because they were very unusual. Anyone heard any of their other albums?
