The Flying Lizards - The Flying Lizards (1979)

Way back when I was a spry twenty year old, full of piss and vinegar, this changed my life. Perhaps a slight exaggeration but the album is nonetheless divine. I spent a surprisingly long time trying to acquire a vinyl copy of it, and finally did, but its actually not that hard to find if you keep yr eyes peeled. I remember hearing The Flying Lizards for the first time and thinking "Oh it's those guys who did 'Money'... neat" but on the whole this is so incredibly much more than that. Formed by the great David Cunningham, they represent a collective of avant-garde artists and musicians in London at the time. So saddle up and enjoy it scuzz mops, this is the real deal!
