Surface Mutants - Anaesthetic 7"


Here's the first release of the Surface Mutants, a not so wellknown band out of Sheffield.
They can be compared to Clock DVA or Cabaret Voltaire, although a bit less experimental.
First time I heard them through the Fantod Under Glass blog, who posted the 'You Take Me Somewhere Strange' 12" which is the band's second release.
To complete the discography, Surface Mutants also appeared on the 'Four From The Floor' comp. 7", together with Hula, Bass Tone Trap and They Must Be Russians. Check also other posts on this recently discovered and interesting blog No Recordshops Left.
So for those with a strong interest in the early 80's Sheffield bands a definitely must!

Anaesthetic 7" (Clönic-CLÖNIC 1-1982)
1. Anaesthetic
2. When Are We? (Now We Are)

Thanks for turning me on to the No Record Shops Left blog. I'd never come across it before. Some really interesting and rare material there.

Do you need Caprice by Look Back In Anger? I've got it if you do.

Hi Pitshade, yes I'm interested. It's the 1st 7" I'm after, not the mini-album (which is posted some time ago on this blog).

This has six songs, so it's probably the mini-album. Would have been nice to give something back, but oh well.

Curious Guy said...

No problem. It's the intention that counts ;)

I used to have the You Take Me Somewhere Strange 12", bought on the strength of hearing it in a record shop back in the day. I'd love to have it again...

The link on Fantod is broken and the blog is stale. I wonder if you might have a copy to share?

I'm more than a little late but I live in hope.

I burned it on a CDR. Need to look for it. Don't have a physical copy of the 12".

Thanks CG, I'm looking forward to it!

Grabbing now. Thanks. I wish I could help with your Requests list.. are you looking for physical artifacts, or will digital files do?

Thanks again for this.
