From a defining album 'Dare', for the band and for the eighties, for a time when music was all colour. When New Wave was sweeping up musical differences and boundaries, dissolving tribal divisions and giving to music a rebirth of energy, in which could sync and exist side by side, pop with punk, glam with metal, the underground with commercialism. And at the heart an exuberant, almost naive, yet purely authentic devotion to music and the fundamental place it could have in one's life.
The single 'Don't You Want Me', which everyone knows, which reverberates with a thumping electronic energy mingled with a sweet, sensitive haunting narrative exploring how over time intimacy can corrupt, dissolve, fritter away. A song of grief and new beginning. Curiously, the song marks a period in the life of the band which runs parallel, which was oppressed by inner conflict, debt, and a lack of confidence. However, their frustration, their ambition, and their raw musical talent and inventiveness were all harnessed to inflict, on the eighties, like a blinding weight light - a musical ferocity and authority that is still celebrated today.
The vinyl is in a good condition, there is dust but the condition is good. The condition of the box is fair, there are some marks, some scuffing, but it is firm and efficient.
