V/A - A Warped Sense Of Human 1981

This hot compilation is exact the stuff I really like and I think I certainly never come in touch with this record, so this was a request and I'm pleased. The hard facts: released on Peartree Records with seven bands, completely unknown to me, with two songs each. Varied sound, punk, wave, synth and alternative and the whole stuff is like a ripe apple. I guess only the islanders are capable of such sounds in the early 80s. Well, it's early in the morning, my first coffee is drunk and I still have about two hours to find my daily form. Enjoy the record whatever you do now.

  1. THANKS GEN!! And Michael as well of course for putting the word out on this rare comp. I agree, this is exactly the kind of esoteric obscurity I tend to be looking for these days (after 20yrs of collecting primarily UK punk/post/wave). Came across it because it was actually pressed/released through the Ellie Jay label, which of course helped get out many now rare & collectible d.i.y. artist/releases. Far as I know only Dancing Counterparts saw anything else committed to wax, that being a 2 track 7" also released though Ellie Jay not long before this LP came out. Thanks again, Mark

  3. This is a real blast from my past, all bands from my home town of Milton Keynes, Tiggles was the lead singer of the Fictitious a band that I saw many times, the Dancing Counterparts were a great band as well. Dave and Alison Bancroft were singers in Ethnik Minority, their wedding made the national press!!

    I'm guessing that Peartree Records is something to do with the youth centre that was located on an estate called Peartree Bridge, I might be wrong.

    A shame that this was probably before the Peartree Bridge Family were doing the rounds, they are still gigging and a loud night of rock is guaranteed!
