It's an honor (well, sort of) to be the first here to recommend this inimitable post-punk collection of Teardrop Explodes material. Much like early Echo & The Bunnymen ("Heaven Up Here"), this music bears repeated listening before it can be truly appreciated. Surprised to just learn that the Teardrop Explodes moniker came from a Marvel comic book (Daredevil) but apparently it is true. Still anxiously waiting for Julian Cope's solo material (specifically "Fried") to make it on iTunes but this will do nicely for now.
The Teardrop Explodes were one of, if not the best neo-psychedelic bands to come out of England in the 80's. This collection shows how electrifying and vibrant their music was and still is. Like Echo and the Bunnymen, TE knew how to write a good catchy pop song and sonically turn it on it's ear. A great band worth listening to.
Buy This Album
A great collection by one of the top bands to come out of the Neo Psychedelic/Post Punk movement in the late 70's and early 80's. This is a big part of the soundtrack of my youth and along with Echo and The Bunnymen and The much underappreciated The Sound they still grace my Ipod frequently. Bono has publicly stated what a huge influence these bands had on him. Download these tracks and find out why. The only thing that would make this collection better would be the inclusion of World Shut Your Mouth and Charlotte Anne. Two classic songs from Julian Cope's solo career. BUY!
