Live In Berlin Au Pairs - AKA 6

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a live album from British post-punk band Au Pairs. Their songs were said to have "contempt for the cliches of contemporary sexual politics" and their music has been compared to the Gang of Four and the Young Marble Giants. There was debate when this album came out in 1983 whether it was officially sanctioned or not. Lead singer Lesley Woods received a £5,000 advance for the tapes of this live recording, and then left the band. The rest of the band disowned the release and made this statement "The release of the album 'Live In Berlin' was not authorised by the Au Pairs. This should be apparent from its poor quality and the banality of the cover design and sleeve notes."
