Kissing The Pink
"Naked" is the first studio album by the English new wave band Kissing the Pink. The album reached No. 54 on the UK Albums Chart in April 1983, and produced their Top 20 hit "Last Film". The song was their best performing single in the UK, and the only one to break the top 75.
Wild And Lonely
Wild and Lonely is the fourth studio album by Scottish post-punk/new wave band The Associates, released in 1990 by record label Circa.
Homosapien is the 1981 second solo album by Buzzcocks frontman Pete Shelley. Homosapien saw a marked departure from the punk guitar stylings of Buzzcocks' records, being heavily influenced by the programmed synthesizer sounds and drum machines of synthpop. The title track was released as a UK single and was banned by the BBC, but was nevertheless a hit in several other countries.
Mange Tout (Extended Version)
Mange Tout is the second album by the British synthpop duo Blancmange. Released in May 1984, it was Blancmange's most successful album, peaking at number 8 in the UK album chart and was certified Gold by the BPI for sales in excess of 100,000 copies. The album contained four UK Top 40 singles, two of which reached the Top 10. The fourth single to be released and final track on the album is a cover version of ABBA's penultimate single The Day Before You Came.
In addition to the usual vinyl and cassette release, a limited edition vinyl picture disc was also released. The album was later released on CD, and a 2-disc remastered Deluxe Edition was released by Edsel in 2008 which featured the album along with a second disc of remixes and B-sides.
The Ups and Downs: A Very Beautiful Collection
1000 Years Of Trouble
Age Of Chance
One Thousand Years of Trouble is the debut full-length album, and second album overall, by English electronic rock band Age of Chance, released in 1987 by Virgin Records. After attracting the attention of Virgin with their industrial cover version of Prince's "Kiss", the band signed to the label and began working on the album with producer Howard Gray, whose Sequential Circuits Studio 440 drum machine enticed the band. Gray was given free hand by Virgin on the album, which was recorded at Trident Studios. The album showcases the band's unique "crush collision" sound, incorporating sampling, noisy power chords, hard percussion, house beats, and influences from post-punk and hip hop. Lead singer Steve Elvidge's lyrics display a Northern, bitter tone, incorporating sloganeering and commenting on contemporary politics.
The influential packaging was one of the first major projects by Designer's Republic. One Thousand Years of Trouble was promoted by a live tour and the release of three singles, all of which had specially commissioned twelve-inch mixes, including a remix of "Take It!" by Public Enemy. The album itself received critical acclaim but saw little commercial success.
The Warp of Pure Fun
The Warp of Pure Fun is an album by Paul Haig.
After the release of Paul Haig's first album with Island, Rhythm Of Life, tracks were recorded for a follow-up during 1984, including. The Only Truth, produced by Bernard Sumner and Donald Johnson of A Certain Ratio. However, due to lack of sales for Rhythm, Island got cold feet and decided to shelve the unreleased album entirely.
Rather than release the cancelled set on Crepuscule, it was decided to combine half the album with new songs recorded throughout 1985. Haig launched his fightback later in the year with a powerful single, "Heaven Help You Now", the lead single from The Warp Of Pure Fun.
Produced with Alan Rankine, it was a more involving, honest set than its predecessor, offering warmer songs and arrangements in place of programmed rhythm tracks, though without entirely abandoning club appeal. In the UK, The Warp Of Pure Fun appeared on another short-lived Crepuscule offshoot, Operation Afterglow, but while the album fared well as an independent release, Afterglow failed to propel it into the national chart.

It was eventually reissued on CD in 2004, as a one disc album and as a three disc box set entitled Laughter, Tears and Rage - The Anthology.
Like most ZTT releases, the LP and CD releases differed quite a lot in track listing. The LP and cassette were both released as 12 tracks, while the CD was 14. However, a number of tracks were exclusive to each format. "Short Story" and "Theme from Laughter" were LP only, while "Poison" and "Bloodrush" were issued only on CD and cassette, and "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" and "The 3rd Planet" were CD only.

Mother Fist And Her Five Daughters
Marc Almond And The Willing Sinners
Mother Fist and Her Five Daughters is the third studio album by the British singer/songwriter Marc Almond. It was released in April 1987 and reached number 41 on the UK Albums Chart. Mother Fist and Her Five Daughters includes the singles "Ruby Red", "Melancholy Rose", and "Mother Fist". The album title is taken from Nocturnal Turnings or How Siamese Twins Have Sex, a short story by the American author Truman Capote. Almond dedicates the album in the liner notes to Capote.
Almond with his assembled band The Willing Sinners, made up of Annie Hogan, Billy McGee, Martin McCarrick, Richard Riley and Steven Humphreys, accompanied by studio musicians recorded the songs for the album at Milo Studios, London and Abbey Road. The artwork was designed by Huw Feather with photography by Ben Thornberry.
My Nation Underground
My Nation Underground is the fourth solo album by Julian Cope. It produced three singles including "Charlotte Anne".
The album's music is an extension of the more commercial side of Cope's songwriting, following on from the relative commercial and organisational success of its predecessor Saint Julian. However, Cope himself has all but disowned My Nation Underground, considering it an artistic mis-step which failed to produce the music which he wanted. Critical consensus on the album generally supports this view.
