Blue Orchids: The Greatest Hit (Money Mountain) CD

Originally called The Blessed Orchids by John Cooper Clarke, they turned Blue and releases a few singles on Rough Trade and this album which topped the Indie Charts in 1982. The two singles that preceded the album Disney Boys b/w The Flood and Work b/w The House That Faded Out gave an indication of what was to come - a blend of the angular post Clear Spot/Television sound that The Fall and peers like Buzzcocks, Josef K, and Wire ran in the slipstream of and the psychedelic. The latter is probably not that far from the approach found in songs like 'Cloud 149' & 'Camera Camera' - an awareness of the 'Nuggets'-era, but delivered with the angular guitar rhythms of the post-punk era.
