The Associates - A 7" MP3/Flac


I've had a few requests to repost some stuff by The Associates, so expect them to appear here over the next few days or so.

Taken from the first album "The Affectionate Punch" I thought that this was their third single. However, long-time friend of the blog Keir provided the following info last time I posted this:
Although it's logical to assume it's their third single according to this it was far from it, being released by Fiction way into 1981, some time after stuff had started coming out on Situation 2.
All the bonkers trademarks are there already - the catchy pop song purposefully hidden under layers of strangeness, the exquisite vocals, the weird lyrics, the sheer invention of it all.
