The Flaming Hands - The Flaming Hands (1984)

First and only full-length from this Australian new wave band. Vocalist Julie Mostyn turns in a commanding performance over the band's dated keyboard grooves. Sounds like they couldn't decide whether they wanted to be The Divinyls or Siouxsie and the Banshees, and ended up in an awesome, low-rent middle ground. My favorite track, "Wild Boy," should have been played over the opening credits of one the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

Track listing:
1. Real World
2. Break Down and Cry
3. Out of Our Hands
4. Wild Boy
5. New Day
6. Cast My Love
7. Tunnels and Trains
8. The Edge
9. Cross My Heart
