Release Info: New Age– All The Monkeys Aren\'t In The Zoo, Maryloo
Here's a fresh high quality rip of a top shelf post-punk LP from 1982 that you may or may not already be familiar with. Hailing from the UK, there's some excellent guitar and synth work here, highly energetic and vital. Reminds me a lot of The Sound atimes, really emotive and passionate vocals (with a sly sense of humor) mixed with buzzing synths, sax, and the incisive guitars we all know and love. Released on the same label as Naughtiest Girl Was a Monitor, Kan Kan, and Normil Hawaiians, to name a few.
This is one of three releases from the band, my favorite being the Livin For Now 12'' (an alternate version of the title track appears on this LP as well). Standouts here include the hard-hitting "Ideals" and "On the Inside," a proper post-punk rave-up. Through and through, a great album that really takes a few listens to click, but well worth the effort!
