Second Layer - Flesh as Property (1979) + State of Emergency (1981)

The Sound - Jeopardy (1980)

A pair of first-rate EPs of darkly political post-punk featuring two members of The Sound. Cerebral, noisy, weirdly catchy, and all-around so fucking good. I am currently halfway through my third time in a row listening to these back-to-back.

Track listing:
  -Flesh as Property-
1. Courts or Wars
2. Metal Sheet
3. Germany
  -State of Emergency-
1. State of Emergency
2. I Need Noise
3. The Cutting Motion

Beyond a prayer

If you like this, listen to:
Métal Urbain - Les Hommes
Morts Sont Dangereux
Modern Eon -
Fiction Tales (1981)


  1. The Sound must be one of the most underrate bands of all time. Really looking forwards to listening to this. I noticed the duo have an album as well?

    1. Yup the LP is just as good as these, just wanted to spotlight the 7 inches. Can post a link if you need it

  2. Great post! full length album link please.

  3. Looking forward to hearing these. Many thanks!


  4. Any chance of the full length album link?

    Much appreciated if you can.
