Gleaming Spires SONGS OF THE SPIRES Vinyl Record - Colored Vinyl

Gleaming Spires SONGS OF THE SPIRES Vinyl Record - Colored Vinyl
Limited 180gm colored vinyl LP pressing including one bonus track. Songs Of the Spires, the 1981 debut album by Los Angeles' Gleaming Spires is plucked from time tasting as zingy as a freshly baked lemon meringue pie. This forgotten gem is a cocktail of catchy melodies and skewed humor resulting in an exciting and delightfully bizarre strain of New Wave. Songs Of the Spires demonstrates a rare brand of insidious pop via ten tracks of quirky heaven, perhaps something well-crafted and eccentric as you would expect from Sparks alumni (Leslie Bohem and David Kendrick moonlighted in Sparks, for which the Mael brothers returned the favour by providing liner sleeve notes). Maybe the LP should most importantly be noted for it's inclusion of the college radio megahit 'Are You Ready For The Sex Girls?' as featured on every valley girls car stereo, or being featured in several films of the era including the 80's screwball frat classic Revenge Of the Nerds (1984). This remastered redux release comes with new exciting artwork utilizing the original illustrations by Kevin J. Walker and fills in the memory gaps with a brand new Artzine containing images and lyrics.
