Mummy You're Not Watching Me (Standard Edition)

Originally released in '82 on D.T.'s own Whaam!, it's one of their darkest and most art-damaged offerings, and one of their most underrated. Rougher, tougher - less jaunty - than And Don't The Kids Just Love It, but also sounding like a different band to the one that would cut They Could've Been Bigger Than The Beatles and The Painted Word: whether essaying brisk, choppy mod-punk on 'Adventure Playground') or wallowing in a dirgy muck of their own making (see especially the nightmarish reverbs and smacked-out nursery-rhyming of 'David Hockneys Diaries'). Essential.
