Five Or Six - Cántame Esa Canción Que Dice, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah LP
Spanish label Edigsa seemed to release records for the Spanish audience, especially from the Cherry Red label as well as bands like Joy Division.
This album of Five Or Six is more than that. Instead of chosing already released recordings, Five Or Six made a compilation of mostly unreleased stuff. 'Another Reason' already appeared on the debut 7", 'Polar Exposure' on the mini-album of the same name, as well as 'Lost Cause'. 'Exhibit A' appeared on the 'A Thriving And Happy Land' but this version here is live.
All the other tracks never appeared on other recordings and there are some really good ones like 'Chalk Circle' with female vocals of Julia Gilbert.
Five Or Six are one of my favourite experimental wave bands from that period. I wonder how many more recordings they did that are never released.
