Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally re-mastered reissue of this 1980 debut album from the Post-Punk outfit led by Adrian Borland. Formed in 1979, The Sound are one of the most unjustly neglected band of the '80 s. They may not be as well-known as their contemporaries Echo & the Bunnymen or Joy Division, but their contributions to the first wave of English Post-Punk are equally unique and influential. Fed up with it's simplistic structure and rote posturing, Borland cut ties to the Punk movement after fronting '77-era group the Outsiders. Not unlike Magazine's Howard Devoto, whose similar inclinations led to his leaving the Buzzcocks, Borland wanted to create a sound that relied more on atmospheres, tensions and instrumental interplay while harnessing the urgency of Punk's spirit. With the release of Jeopardy, The Sound turns this inspiration into a nearly perfect debut.
