Interrupting my recent junglist Amen break obsession, I’ve been listening to JD Twitch’s excellent mix of Adrian Sherwood’s dub back catalogue and Vivien Goldman’s “Private Armies” popped up… and I fell in love with it. It’s like a time capsule from 1981.
The A-side “Launderette” is also a winner, according to I Love Total Destruction it was recorded sneakily as part of the PiL “Flowers of Romance” sessions. The front cover looks like a still from a film. And I still think that American Typewriter typeface is due a comeback, if it hasn’t already.
