Weren't they performing with The Church at that concert, somewhere at the UW? (I can't get my dates straight anymore!) Yep, I witnessed two awesome bands that night. I also saw The Church a second time (before or after, I don't remember) that featured a warm-up band called The Rave-Ups, whom I DO like, but thought it an odd pairing.

I've always thought their last proper 80's album (prior to the breakup) had a lot of underated songs, a few of which made people's lists above:

Lips Like Sugar
Bombers Bay
Bedbugs and Ballyhoo
Blue Blue Ocean
Satellite (I think that's the title...don't have the cd handy right now).

Maybe it's becuase I first some them live (Seattle 1988) on that tour...what a killer show!

Older faves include:
Silver
My Kingdom
Villiars Terrace

<br>Bedbugs and Ballyhoo was always my fave. No one mentioned that. Hmm.. Is it rare now? I believe it was the b side to "Lips Like Sugar" but I could be wrong...

You are right. I also like Bedbugs... very much. I spent all day today singing it and also singing Close To Me by The Cure.

ElectricLash, memory is a funny thing. I can remember exactly what I wore but I can't for the life of me remember who opened.

I agree, that album is underrated. Now that I think about it, it seems like that was my last New Wave album; it closed an era for me. I have to think about this some more and then reply in the "What did you listen to in the late 80s?" thread.

People are Strange is one of the best cover songs of all time.
