Shark Taboo - Seeds Of A Lunatic LP
Shark Taboo was a female-fronted gothwave band from London. 'Seeds Of A Lunatic' is their first album. What sets them apart from other goth bands is the socio-political content of the lyrics. A song like 'Patriotic Flag' deals about war, 'Cage' is about animal abuse.
'Big Sell' and 'Troineann Siad' were released as a 7" before, on Crisis (same label as Stiff Kittens) and Lambs To The Slaughter respectively. 'Cage' also released as a 12" on Lambs To The Slaughter.
Shark Taboo lasted till the early 90's and released 1 more 12" and 3 more albums, which I've never heard.
