Lemon Kittens - The Big Dentist (1981)
Those that bite the hand that feeds them sooner or later must meet ... THE BIG DENTIST ...! Indeed, there is no better statement to sum up this album. I've only just started listening to it, I stumbled upon it a few days ago while researching Karl Blake, and I immediately knew I had to share it on here. It's got so much of what I love in so many different bands. There is just so much to offer. It's like The Flying Lizards, with a bit of Eno (sometimes), and even briefly at times it takes on a certain tenderness which can't help but remind one of the great Robert Wyatt, of The Soft Machine. Take all of that and mix it with some sort of odd-ball early electronica/80's synth-pop and you might be close to this album. You may also be way off base. Who knows, and who cares. This album is so much stranger and eclectic then how i've explained it, so just get it because it's really interesting and fantastic stuff!
"The Lemon Kittens are a post-punk band formed in Reading, Berkshire, England in the late 1970s by Karl Blake and Gary Thatcher. The cast of the band revolved quite frequently, notably counting among its membership musicians such as Danielle Dax and Mark Perry of Alternative TV and The Good Missionaries." - Wikipedia.com
