GROW UP -6-song EP (Object 05) '79 DIY artpop - Mess#106 band

GROW UP -6-song EP: Stay Awake / 10 Mins / Photo / Lake / River / So Long (Object 05)
Manchester '79: fantastic two-songs-and-two-keys-at-once minimal DIY postpunk scrubbing (with trumpet and sax) - mixing with Nick Drake/Tim Buckley dark-pop (that they'd absorbed from Steve Solamar's record-collection). More raggedy and angular than their track on Messthetics #106, and utterly charming in their furry teenaged way. John Bissett-Smith developed A-list alt/art-pop chops on the "Joanne" 45 and their LPs, but this is to them as, well, Green's "Messthetics" is to "The Sweetest Girl".
VG+/EX (Disk new)

River - note the lone, 15 second chorus at the very end.
