# 468 The Times - Love at first sigh

Side a: 1. Tuesday the 12th , 2. So so
Side b: 1. Muzak , 2.New girl
USA 1982
First of two outputs by this Cleveland based band. The songs were written between 1980 and 1982. A very nice mix of new wave (Muzak has a very strong "Gary Numan" influence) and powerpop. Released on Warped records (home of Fragile Eyeon and Asbestos Rockpyle). A very enjoyable Record. I like it!


# 467 Gay Wild - Action Action

 Side a: Action action
Side b: Wild girl
UK 1980
Gay Wild released this sole single on Elton John's "The Rocket Record Company". The hole thing looks like a studio projekt. Side a is a nice "Toyah/Lene Lovich" soundalike new wave track while the b side is more in a "Suzy Quatro" mood. Not a bad record.
