Gold Collection by Blah Blah Blah

Album Description

CURATOR:
Released:1981
Recorded:1981
GENRE:
Length:00:19:47

What's this? One lion, two moles, two zoo keepers, improvised music, no rhythm? Can I take it, this excercise in free thinking? The grunting vocals, the vibrating rubber bands and noise of someone banging on the ceiling. Amusing digs at the modern warrior accompanied by electronic squonks and bips. They consist of one womble two cats and two traffic wardens and specialise in lurching blahism (hyperbolic and frothy sounds) and can be observed on stage dressed as shakespearian actors making unwelcome, ugly noises to the chagrin of many. An eccentric band of experimental musicians with a bizarre brand of rock disguised by weird noises. The worst jazz cords ever invented, excruciating tones  through various noise devices may bring chortles of laughter from the loopy denizens on the extreme arts fringe.Jaywick jazz? I wouldn't play this to my dog. Dressing up as rocks Blah Blah Blah  are without doubt the weirdest bunch you could ever meet. Manes of electronic gadgetry with wind machines, this is an experience in pop - creepy then crawly examples of the emaciated psychedelic or psychic escapist elements of post-punk music.That was the general view paraphrased from the music press (Sounds,NME,Melody Maker,Smash Hits) 1981-82Blah Records UK are offering all of this on three unforgetable liberating albums now available for download and CD.

In this Gold Collection you also get the singles In the Army and Why Diddle?  So if your mother was a radiator and the natives are restless hunting weazels outside the veg shop, go down to soho and itch your pants.

great set of Blah Blah Blah -- "In The Army" is particularly awesome. Hearing it on Brian Turner's show today reminded me of this: (here's the archive of the show http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/32382)

Especially in "In the Army", the vocalist sounds like he must be the father of Amanda, the child star so often featured (gratefully!) on Irwin's show.

you're so right Katya, I did a double-take when I heard Blah Blah Blah's "In The Army" again after being introduced to Amanda's crazy cookie monster stylings (I will never hear music the same again!)

And what a coincidence that you should mention 'The Power Child' today as I'm piecing things together to debut some Amanda tracks on the FMA on Monday, very excited about that!

I should mention Blah Blah Blah were introduced by wfmu dj Tony Coulter http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/tony-coulters-posts/

Amanda on the FMA? That is really exciting news. Very happy to read it. Cheers to you all for working that out, and cheers to Coulter for Blah Blah Blah.
