Colin Newman - It Seems (1988)

 Colin Newman was the singer and guitar player for the legendary english punk group The Wire. They were one of the best bands of the first wave of punk, due to their unique, sophisticated, sharp edged punk miniatures. Later they developed their sound, under the influence of pop, neo-psychedelia and electronica. 
When the band temporarily split in 1980, Newman pursued a solo career. His first solo LP, A-Z, was released in 1980 on the Beggar's Banquet label.
"It Seems" is his fifth album, released at 1988, it was his second for Crammed Discs label, after "Commercial Suicide", and it keeps the tradition: beautifull songs with delicate melodies and - something new - wide use of sequencers — something Newman would continue to work with for a number of years. Both Crammed albums featured Malka Spigel, from Israeli dark/ electronic band Minimal Compact.




 It's a post punk masterpiece...
