THE REFLECTIONS-SLUGS AND TOADS, LP, 1981, UK




Something of a UK DIY post punk supergroup and easily one of the rarest titles issued by Cherry Red, this ragtag assemblage culls together personnel from Alternative TV (Mark Perry, Dennis Burns), The Lemon Kittens (Karl Blake) and The Door And The Window (Nag) and much like the demographics suggest, around 3/4 of the contents here err on the side of the sort of itchy and endearingly disheveled post punk machinations that Perry, Burns and Nag were proffering in their primary vehicles, though Blake's presence insures some measure of overtly riotous sonic deformation will be brought to bear, most notably on the deeply twisted and uber-Beefheartian lurch 'n' caper-fest of "Toy Dog Ripped By Cat", one of the more demented chestnuts that Blake's ever had a hand in penning.

I've never heard this one before, and I am loving this record! They're obviously quite inspired by the Lemon Kittens, but this album rates right up there with anything by them or Alternative TV. What an excellent surprise!

This is an amazing record, Mark Perry is one of my all time fave punk heroes - does anyone have a copy of the 'Searching' 7" by Reflections?

if you like this album i recommend listening to The Good Missionaries and Perry's solo album 'Snappy Turns'
