I Spartacus - Crank 12"
This is probably my first Australian post here.
I Spartacus was recommended to me by a few people and it's indeed a great record. Strongly influenced by the dark UK goth sound.
The 'Crank' 12" was released by the band in 1988. But they already existed as Dog For Jonathon, later I'm Spartacus, already from the early 80's. Their first release as I'm Spartacus is the 'Donna Is Distressed' 7" from 1983.
After the 'Crank' 12" followed the 'The Greats' LP. Never heard this one but they were going for a more mainstream approach I was told, although still an enjoyable listen.
For those interested in the history of band, should check this page here.
