FRANK SUMATRA AND THE MOB-TE DEUM, 12" E.P., 1981, UK




Jubilant and infectious brilliance from what is essentially Family Fodder in disguise on this brief 12" EP. Aside from a couple of minute-long nugs of quirk (including a delightfully tinkertoy take on Telstar) the bulk of this is comprised of two feature tracks
and man oh man are they ever knockouts, "The Story So Far" an immaculate slice of post punk art pop glory in the Homosexuals mode, "Tedium" a proactively R.I.O.-ish bit of Slapp Happy meets Henry Cow by way of Kew Rhone arch art song wit.

Never heard of this before, thanks!
Also the The Lo Yo Yo lp is another good example of R.I.O gone P.O.P.
