The Art Of Falling Apart
I'm not normally one for forensically picking apart albums but The Quietus has just published a particularly fascinating dissection of Soft Cell's The Art Of Falling Apart. I imagine most people now pretty much just think of them as the band that did Tainted Love but their follow up stuff was so much better/darker/weirder (check out Baby Doll for instance) which, as a bit of a odd young thing, really appealed to me at the time. Hell, it still does. Anyway have a listen to a few choice tracks from the album itself and if it gets your juices flowing pour yourself an Absinthe or two and read the article as well.
