New Age Steppers – Fade Away / London Underground – Learn a Language

steppers-frontsteppers-rear

7″, On-U Sound, 1980

The first ever release on the mighty On-U Sound label. Lead track is Ari Up and various ex-Pop Group chums on a Junior Byles classic, and you never heard the ex-Slits singer so sweet before or since. That extraordinary soaring note she hits near the end is sublime. (RIP, Ariana.) On the flip, the loose collective known as London Underground, including Dr Pablo, Martin Frederix from Family Fodder and some Mothmen. Essential, and not just because of its little place in history.
