flowers for agatha - the freedom curse 12" 1985

a very underrated band from leeds that was active during 1985-1986 c86 period, some might say they were a goth outfit as their first single exhibits it, but the latter part of their short-lived career showcases the band's jangly side in "through the ceiling" sounding a bit like "the smiths".

choir invisible - from sea to shining sea lp 1984

a fantastic local band from cali, these dudes formed the band in 1981 from the ashes of arcadia's punk band "flyboys" after they broke up in 1980. john curry, scott larksen and thames sinclair was then joined by danny benair and then the birth of choir invisible. a post-punk outfit with mesmerizing melodies like ultravox's and a deep siren-like vocals that takes you somewhere else you are not momentarily and that's all she wrote.
