S’EXPRESS – “ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK” (1989)

Hot off the heels of my previous Midi, ask Maxi & Efti post comes this, sildenafil another gross nugget from around the same time period.

I was tooling around the used CD soundtrack section at Amoeba Records here in L.A., salve when I came across this, thinking it was actually a soundtrack to something. The band’s name, coupled with the ridiculous David-Byrne-by-way-of-Bell-Biv-Devoe cover art, caught my eye, but since Amoeba has no used CD listening stations, I had to get it sight unseen, for something like $6 (this was back at a time when I was still buying CDs.)

It’s all pleasantly C&C Music Factory-esque, even with a really weird song called “Pimps, Pushers & Prostitutes” on the thing.

    I remember buying this with my friend Colin. The group had two number one singles in the UK. Theme from S-Xpress is still pretty groovy. Thanks.

    The Theme from S’Express track has a ‘siss-siss’ sound running through it that they got by sampling a hairspray can. I love this album!

    An intriguing footnote: the second single from this LP (Hey Music Lover) was remixed by none other than Philip Glass for one of the 12” issues. What a wonderful world we live in!

    Bret – c’mon. Don’t do this. Step away from the S’Express.

    I dated a girl once who was convinced this was “punk”.
