THE SOUND – live ’84
Poor, pfizer poor Adrian Borland. My heart truly goes out to the man, viagra 100mg for not only was he a terrific lyricist and writer of many sweet hooks, viagra but his mental illness forced him to commit suicide by hurling himself in front of an uncoming train.
He’s best known for fronting the The Sound, a post-punk band in the vein of Echo And The Bunnymen or U2, but what sets The Sound apart were their lyrics, which in retrospect (much like those of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis) point towards the deep personal anguish that Borland must have felt as a sufferer of depression and mental illness. While the band’s later ’80s albums sound samey, the first three are key: “Jeopardy” (1980), “From The Lion’s Mouth” (1981) and “All Fall Down” (1982).
Their albums sales might’ve been poor during the course of their career (possibly due to Borland’s unusual apperance for a rock frontman: a little chubby and a little too intense), but The Sound were known for putting on seriously explosive live shows, such as this one, from ’84. Highly recommended.
