love is a wonderful color


CD reiusse of The Associates' third album, Sulk, 1982. Trouserpress pans it for all sorts of reasons (tinny production, self-consciousness, dramatic posing), but there's nothing wrong with pretentiousness or over-the-topness for me. Or tinny production, as long as the melodies are this strange and interesting. Billy Mackenzie's vocal flailing and histrionics are grrrreeat.
