The Mel-O-Tones - s/t MLP
Here's the first release of The Mel-O-Tones from Liverpool. Sounds quite different than the 'Melonheaded' 12". Perhaps it has to do that this one was 'recorded in glorious monophonic'. It gives a raw touch. Actually this is a 12" as it plays on 45RPM but it is listed in the LP category of Probe Plus Records.
Here's a bit more from the Headheritage review:
The general production quality is on a par with the Electric Eels and is likewise all the better for it and distinctly non-eighties.'Burton buzz' manages to constantly sound on the verge of falling apart and rip the shit out of Simon le Bon at the same time.What more could you ask for?
