The Bodies - Art Nouveau 7" (1979, Waldo's Records)

This one sometimes gets discussed among punk collectors, but the title track is certainly an early example of deathrock / goth doom and gloom pre-dating the first releases of bands such as Christian Death or 45 Grave.Apparently they also did a John Peel session in 1980.... Looks like the title track was presented here couple years ago, but here are both tracks.

  1. ...hello sorrow-vomit,
    would it be an overkill to make a request?
    Searching for the Cages Play 7" long time now,
    and i can't find it anywhere to purchase it... :-/
    If you ever find some spare time,
    and feel like ripping it, i'd be more than grateful...

  2. Hi, luckily I ripped the Cages Play 7" 3 or 4 years ago... so can upload it in the next day or two. You're right, it is rare that it ever shows up for sale...
