One of the most respected British bands in the mid '80s post punk era, Sad Lovers & Giants played highly atmospheric music made of melancholic melodies and epic guitar riffs. An overtly romantic attitude that slowly developed towards an even more open (pop) sound approach. Originally released in 1987 on Midnight records 'Mirror Test,' the band's third studio effort, arrived as the fruit of an updated line up and a clear step in such direction. A very harmonious collection of songs, some of which are still recognized among the best in the band's entire catalog.

CHRISMA - CHINESE RESTAURANT

CHRISMA - CHINESE RESTAURANT

Repress! A remarkable Italian new wave album, influenced by a.o. The Stranglers, Suicide and Ultravox. Though dating from early '78 (recorded in '77!), the band's style had more to do with early '80s post-punk than '77 punk rock. A deserved reissue for a special LP!
