    I don't know if this is New Wave, Post Punk, Postmodern, or what have you.

    But these guys were hugely influential in later bands, in particular Sonic Youth. Listen to this song. I mean, come on!

    Vs babolat...nice ones.
    I toatelly Oubliéd about squeeze. XTC learned a lot from their sound.

    The Jam's Going Underground has one of my favorite lines, "the public gets what the public wants".

    Lol, well done!
    The officer dood in the red milaterry preisthood garb looks ameazeng. I wonder if he can come buff the windows on the outside of my office?

    Duran duran, "working for the skin trade" is new to me! That track Clearly inspired Prince's Kiss, and some recycled dirty londrey from dawn henley.

    Prolly not Frum England, but I just wanted to menshen:
    Noo shooz, ebn ozn and scritti politti.
    What about the tom tom club?

    Going underground is as relevant today as it was back then. Sadly.

    SLF went from being a punk band to an early 80s post punk sound.

    So many memories! I was out of work during Summer 1980 when "Argybargy" was huge...played that album into square ruts AND took a "job" with a friend's cover band that played any and all of that track list at every gig. Plus, Squeeze toured that summer and we all went as a group to see them at a beach club venue on Long Island South Shore! Best summer EVER!!!!

    My Script of the Bridge picture disc... saw them at the 930 Club in '84 and a few times after. Great band. One of my favorite records of all time.

    One of their former drummers past away a few days ago. I was listening to them on youtube and on the side I saw a video titled "tribute to john lever."

    It is a very good album though. There are actually a few fans of The Chameleons on here too! Think I was talking to some chap from Brazil about them briefly. I posted Caution from Strange Times somewhere on this page. I think it's like 4 of the first 5 tracks on Strange Times I really like, but overall I might prefer Script of the Bridge. Not sure. Mad Jack, Caution, Soul in Isolation, and Swamp Thing make for an incredible opening imo. Think it's just the 3rd track that I don't like.

    I had no idea. Very sad - major bummer.

    On the brighter side, looks like ChameleonsVox have 2017 tour dates in the US:

    ChameleonsVox U.S. tour dates:

    Sept. 8: A Strange Day Festival, Capitol Theater, Olympia, WA
    Sept. 9: Oakland Metro, Oakland, CA
    Sept. 10: Echoplex, Los Angeles, CA
    Sept. 13: Bluebird Theatre, Denver, CO
    Sept. 14: Chop Shop, Chicago, IL,
    Sept. 15: TBA, New York, NY
    Sept. 16: Middle East Downstairs, Cambridge, MA

    Lots of those bands i liked a bit but they were gateway drug bands. They lead to the Smiths and the Cure and next thing you know i was deep into 80s goth. Still am.

    The highlight of my music "career" - such as it was(n't) - was playing bass in this band called Fudge in the early-90s and opening for the Buzzcocks for about a month. I think I walked away with $300 at the end of the tour.

    Still going strong although I think it's only Dave Wakeling from the original group. I saw them last month.
