The Sound - Jeopardy (1980)


First-rate, severely depressing English post-punk. To my ears, Jeopardy is one of the best records of its kind. How can music be 100% appropriate both for dancing and killing oneself?

Track listing:
1. I Can't Escape Myself
2. Heartland
3. Hour of Need
4. Words Fail Me
5. Missiles
6. Heyday
7. Jeopardy
8. Night Versus Day
9. Resistance
10. Unwritten Law
11. Desire

Seems like my shadow mocks every stride
