Vinyl LP repressing of this 1984 album from the British Indie legends. The Painted Word is a near-perfect collection of jangly, riffing guitars, organ chords, freaky tambourines and Velvet Underground-like drumming. Every song on this dark, hauntingly beautiful masterpiece is a gem in the rough. It's easy to hear similarities to Swell Maps, the Only Ones and the Modern Lovers in the group's unique style that draws from both DIY punk and Post-Punk Psychedelia. Is Dan Treacy one of England's last great songwriters? with even more Britishness than Ray Davies, this wounded romantic's lyrics are both detached and resonant. The Painted Word is a stark, heartfelt album made by a vulnerable and damaged genius backed by an amateurish band offering loads of brilliantly adapted pop-art weirdness.
