This Perfect Day- No Frills, Just Noise! LP ~REISSUE!
This Perfect Day- No Frills, Just Noise! LP. This Perfect Day was a band formed in Manchester, UK around 1981 by vocalist/blues harp player John Sama Snowden and synthesiser player Mik Hayes. John had the ‘street-cred’ having previously been vocalist with ‘The Limit’ and ‘The Passage’ during which time they played gigs alongside Joy Division. Their music was never intended to be ‘synth music’ in the classic Kraftwerk / Human League / OMD sense of the genre. It was music that just ‘used’ synthesisers because they didn’t have a drummer or a guitarist. They immediately started writing their own songs, ‘bouncing’ music from track to track on a Revox B77 tape recorder, using a monophonic ARP Axxe and a Soundmaster SR-88 drum machine. From 1981 - 1983 they were able to record a total of 13 songs on 8-track tape at Bootleg Studios, Stockport, UK, culminating in the final session with the recording of The Garden and The Time of Your Life which was released as a double A side single purely for promotional purposes. Both of those songs are included on this reissue along with 9 other unreleased songs that they recording in the early 80’s. Their sound jolts between an early Tuxedomoon sound to bright moody pop.
