I was wondering what to post today when I came across this post over at the Vinyl District featuring tracks from The Sound’s second album ‘From The Lion’s Mouth’. This single is from the same album. I’ve seen The Sound compared to several post-punk bands, like Echo & the Bunnymen, Comsat Angels and even Joy Division, but this song is a dead ringer for the Teardrop Explodes. As with many bands from this era critical acclaim did not lead to high sales. For more information see this site which also includes interviews with surviving members.
mp3: The Sound - Sense of Purpose (What Are We Going To Do)
1981 Korova KOW 21
The album has had a CD release but seems to be currently unavailable unless you want to pay over £30 on Amazon Marketplace.
