TVD's Daily Wax | Blanket of Secrecy "Ears Have Walls"

OK, so I admit it. Maybe this wasn't the brightest idea to highlight these random New Wave LP's this week. Seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess. Playback on some of these tracks has left me pretty underwhelmed. (So much for building up one's blog, huh?) I guess those Datarock guys were on to something.

But if there's an LP that will stand the test of time, it's this Blanket of Secrecy LP--largely because they didn't adhere to the trappings of the era and made a pretty darn smart and at times Beatle-y record. I'd link to thank Mr. Mine For Life for putting this old favorite under my nose again and for enlightening me as to the origin of 'Tinker','Tailor' and 'Soldier' -- the mysterious pseudonyms behind the record's creators.

Maybe posting random 80s new wave wasn't the brightest idea in your mind but from here in Canada, you are a saviour!! I have this fantastic album on vinyl, alas no more turn tables!! I have been hunting high and low for it on CD or maybe even some MP3s. Now I have some to tide me over! If you'd like to post some Fra Lippo Lippe, you'd have a friend for life!!

I think you can still grab the entire LP over at Mine for Life. Check the link in the post.

And y'know--I do have a Fra Lippo Lippi LP...'Songs' I believe it's called...

Yeah! Canada loves your random New Wave posts. I have to say thanks so much... I've picked up on a number of new-to-me artists from this blog, (and I've dutifully bought work from my favourites).

You do great work. Thanks so much.
