Pink Industry: Who Told You You Were Naked (Zulu, distributed by Rough Trade).
Yet another Liverpool band, producing far more experimental and intriguing (if less obviously commercial) styles through their own independent label. Pink Industry’s new album offers a collection of synthesiser and percussion-backed songs that range from the sombre and brooding to the more cheerful and accessible. The band is a three-piece, including Ambrose Reynolds (formerly with the now much-publicised Frankie Goes To Hollywood), and singer Jayne Casey. The album varies from half-spoken passages to Industrial mood music, and synthesised hints of The Doors on Extreme.
