Limping For A Generation 2CD - Blow Monkeys (The)

Limping For A Generation 2CD
THE BLOW MONKEYS were formed in the early 1980s by singer and songwriter Robert Howard (stage name: Dr. Robert).
Combining the glamour of Roxy Music with the energy of post-punk, the sophistication of nu-jazz and the vocal and melodic stylings of Marc Bolan and T. Rex, THE BLOW MONKEYS signed to RCA Records in 1984.
Debut album LIMPING FOR A GENERATION was one of the cult favourites of 1984, acclaimed by music journalists as the band were heralded as the next Smiths.
LIMPING FOR A GENERATION has now finally been re-mastered from the original tapes.
This deluxe 2-CD edition boasts all of THE BLOW MONKEYS’ non-album B-sides, including their trademark live cover of Tom Jones’ ‘It’s Not Unusual’.
In addition, this 2012 edition boasts thirteen previously unissued demos recorded by the band during the sessions for the album, including the otherwise unheard Dr. Robert song ‘Soul Boys In Slumber’.

Release Date: 26/11/2012
