another New Wave band that blew my young (impressionable definitely, also easily impressed?) mind, like Punishment of Luxury much played on late night Radio One, but somehow they subsequently completely erased themselves from my life / memory, i sold the singles of "Independence Day" and "Total War" for some reason

after those two singles they went mainstream Big Rock pretty quick, building on the P. Gabriel aspects of their sound

but i dunno, the long fade-out to "Total War" is pretty amazing still i think, shades of i dunno side 2 My Life in the Bush or Bamboo Music

can't find the proper original 7 inch version of "Independence Day" on youtube, not in embeddable form but it's here (avert your eyes from horrible video added to it)
