Second Layer - World Of Rubber (LP, Cherry Red, 1981) plus two singles





When UK's The Sound recorded their first album, 'Jeopardy', they worked fast and had some studio time left. Adrian Borland and Graham Greene (real name: Bailey), quickly recorded 'World Of Rubber' as Second Layer. An album full rhythm machines, guitars and vocals. Dark and creepy, but ever since hearing 'Fixation' on the radio back in 1982, I am a fan of this album. They also released two 7" records, which come in a separate zip. The album 'Second Layer' on LD Records from 1987 has the two 7"s. A pity Cherry Red never released this on CD. So this is more or less the full discography:


Flesh As Property E.P. (7", EP) Tortch Records 1979
State Of Emergency E.P. (7", EP) Tortch Records 1980
World Of Rubber (LP) Cherry Red 1981
Second Layer (LP) LD Records 1987

Holy sh*t! I have this album on vinyl (loved "Fixation" too) and it was like nothing else out at the time. I didn't even know about the other two singles. I was just thinking about the album yesterday and a quick Google and here I find you posted it 2 days ago - that's friggin' eerie!!!

Cherry Red has actually reissued the album on CD at long last!

yes, I know. I have it. it sounds very good. a pity that the 7"s are not part of it, but then cherry red never was very good in doing this sort of thing properly (see their five or six cd)
