BENJAMIN LAMPSHADE

I beg of you, don't be turned off by the ridiculous title of this post, because this 1988 demo from BENJAMIN LAMPSHADE  is a gloriously noisy dirge of dark UK punk.  Equal parts KILLING JOKE, UK DECAY and BAUHAUS, with guitar leads that would sound just as at home on a ZOUNDS record as it would a SCRATCH ACID release, and a hollow affected guitar tone that won me over 20 seconds into "The Madman's Waltz." These tracks were recorded at Soundstar in London in 1988, and the band's contact was Phil, on Palmerston Road...so Phil, drop me a line will you?  I need more of this BENJAMIN LAMPSHADE shits!!  Brilliant.
