The Sound formed in South London in 1979. It was only by misfortune that the band didn't have the success of Echo and the Bunnymen or Cure.
Their music was genius. Depth and variation, tensions, atmoshperes and unstrained melodies was the perfect environment for the existensial lyrics.
No need to write more about this unforgettable band.
Only that Adrian Borland, the genius songwriter and singer of the band put an end to his life around this time, on 26 April 1999...
This is their last release. The darkness of the first records is still here. "Iron years" (could have easily been a part of "Shock of daylight") was included in their last LP "Thunder Up" (1987) but the true diamonds here are the two songs on the b side.
1. Iron Years (remix)
2. Such a difference
3. Fall of Europe
We are living in the iron years
