Nothing Synthy here...
Just some straight up New Wave elle' !
Got to mix it up...
Two bands here attest to the influence of Blondie on the music of the late 70’s/early 80’s.
The Passengers never had the backing of a major label, but this demo (issued on a French CD shows that Australia had better bands than Icehouse available for export in ’79. The striking Angie Pepper, who from the look of the booklet often performed in a bra.
Here it is for you
The Expressos used the Girl Group meets the New Wave shtick but never sounded derivative. In fact the song-writing here equals a lot of Blondie’s late 70’s peak. This is so damn good!
Here it is for you...
