Lulu Kiss Me Dead - 12"s



In the very early days of this blog, I got a request from an anonymous person asking if I had some Lulu Kiss Me Dead. Didn't have anything back then but my curiosity made me look for more. Not very easy to find, especially the 12" version of 'The Ultimate Solution'.
Couldn't find any info on Lulu Kiss Me Dead. If you dig the accessible wave sound of the Situation 2 releases, you might like this band too.
I think both records are the complete discography of the band. Any other info more than welcome. Don't know when the 'Speak To Me' 12" was released (no date on the record) but I guess it was released after the 'The Ultimate Solution' 12". It also came out on a label I don't know anything about. Maybe their own label?

The Ultimate Solution 12" (Situation Two-SIT 39T-1985)
1. The Ultimate Solution
2. This Is Rock 'n' Roll This Is Heaven
3. Spades

Speak To Me 12" (Big Fish Records-CARP 1-198?)
1. Speak To Me
2. Someday Soon
3. Heart And Soul

Hello Kurt, glad to be of service! Don't have the 12" of The Wedding for now.

At first , great blog full of useful info!
Lulu kiss me dead was great band. Got only Speak to me, but listened to Ultimate solution on MySpace... very hard to obtain that 12".

There was a cool label called Leeds independent label, home to very known Rose of Avalanche and some more obscure acts. The complete L.I.L. discography would be great, and some info on bands Flowers for Agatha , Hang the dance and Dorian Gray.
Keep on the good work!!!

Curious Guy said...

Hello Marx, thanks for the comment. Would like to have more info on Leeds Independent myself. Flowers For Agatha coming soon. Have heard of the other bands (Dorian Gray & Hang The Dance) but never heard them before.

Hello Figgy,
thanks for leaving a comment here. You can always post some extra info on the band if you wish. That's one of the reasons to run this blog.
All the best.

nice 12-inchers you got there! I have them myself and these are pretty hard to get by these days. Speak To Me is easier at less than $5/piece. Ultimate Solution is hard to find, and if you find one it wont be cheap!

Diehard said...

Don't know if it's still a matter of interest but I found some information about "Negatives In Colour", which seems to have been the predecessor of Lulu Kiss Me Dead:

Hello anon. Thanks for the link. Never heard Negatives In Colour. Any interesting?

There is a compilation over at Crispy Nuggets, which features one song by Negatives In Colour ("Love Amongst The Buildings").
That song was officially released on the "One Giant Leap"-compilation and offers "intriguing synth diversions and a quirky hook" (according to the back cover notes by Paul Strange, Melody Maker).

Hello people who are aware lulukissmedead and negativesincolour are virtually the same ..just pesonnel change...we have recently reformed under the guise of negativesincolour but still incorporating lulu songs and the response at recent gigs proves we still are relevant....more info negativesincolour.co.UK...mick walker
