I love this era, 78-82 produced loads of my favourite records. Entertainment, Closer, Fire of Love, Deceit and The Raincoats have been favs for a while and I'd think are pretty well known on here.
Discovered a few lesser known albums lately which I had never heard of before but are now well on their way to joining the above!
Lizzy Mercier Descloux - Press Color
French singer, really funky album with quite a few covers all in her own style, love her voice
Tuxedomoon - Desire
Why had I never heard of this band? pretty avant garde in places
Pink Industry - Low Technology
Liverpool band from a little further into the 80s, think this album was from 83. Discovered this through James Pants' blog. Pretty tough to find even on the net
Any others that people would recommend?
