Scam 1989. SCAM005
Dub Sex were a Manchester band who were, I think, unjustly ignored. This is a fabulous, dark single, oozing with energy and anger. It’s like a cross between Wire and late period New Fads. I came across them on a flexi which came with an issue of the excellent Debris magazine, on the strength of which I bought a few bits and pieces by the band. I know nothing more about them, and there’s precious little on the net, but don’t let that put you off – this should have been huge.
Dub Sex have appeared on this blog before, on the rather fine Edward Not Edward compilation. There is of course nothing available to buy by the band.
