One Of You —
One Of You ... LP Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 80s. New Copy ...
Really compelling work from One Of You – a female singer from the Czech Republic who fled in 1968 – then emerged as a recording artist in the US during the big indie wave in the early 80s! The music here is unlike anything else we've ever heard before – spare, sad-tinged songs sung with mostly just spare keyboard backing – but with a melancholy vibe that seems to reach far back into Eastern European tradition – then refine the whole thing for a post-punk generation. Most numbers are very simple, with hypnotic use of rough language – some in English, some in Czech. Titles include "Riddle", "Waiting For Your Return", "Life Is Hard", "Faded Flowers", "Don't Be Desperate", "Cow Song", and "Life Is A Puddle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies – with a booklet of notes, and a nice heavy cover!)
