Editor's note: I want to say that this is a hybrid between a hybrid of The Sisters of Mercy and Adam Ant but I think that generalizes things a bit too much. Plus I have no real music knowledge and those are easy names to throw and look smart using. A great sounding EP though the content starts out relatively strong and waters itself down to the last blaring synthesizer. Worth the 20 minute listen just to acclimate yourself with something from the 80s which wasn't all big hair and sentiment.

Wow, Lost In Clubland reminds me of the song Nemesis by Shriekback, which was a hit a couple years later. I like this!

You're right it does! Haven't listened to very much Shriekback which is odd because I love XTC and their early albums with Barry Andrews. Also, if you didn't know, Andrews and Andy Partridge have released a new album in the last year or so. You might like it.
