oh well, goodbye

in another age and another time, you might have rightly expected this to stumble into the light having been sent out by Factory records to defend itself in the big bad world of a dysfunctioning punk scene whose paths where splintering into post punk, art pop and new wave. Certainly has the shadowy northern overcoat vibe and if you didn’t know better, you’d  have sworn you’d heard on a lost Peel show sometime around ’81, yet for all its Wild Swan-isms and hints of the Passage and is that the subtle souring of And Also the Trees ghosting throughout the grooves, we here found ourselves utterly smitten by a slow fuse brooding out of which, a closer ear reveals something wounded and very mournfully withdrawn in the much missed bruised beauty of the Workhouse with just the merest of ‘movement’ era New Order nods spectrally flitting throughout. This incidentally, is Oh well, goodbye with a new thing going by the name ‘and ease’.
