A couple of years ago we watched a “great” film called Gymkatta. A martial art that involves gymnastics mixed with karate.
That got me thinking after his gymnastic dismount and then moving over to another badly disguised piece of gymnastic equipment, a set of parallel bars, made me come up with a name of a band, that being Perfect Dismount and within a couple of minutes the group helped me with a name of their only album. That being Parallel Lies.
That overview over, the next question is what genre was this band. It has to be a mid 80s band. I think it’s a band that could have given OMD a run for their money with their own twist of electro-pop but with a Soviet twist.
I therefore give you, not only the cover for the album but also the track list for the album. I have to let you know that the album has been unavailable since the 80s mainly due to the nature of music and the fact that this is a hypothetical band as well.
Parallel Lies tracklist:
- Parallel Lies
- Death By Stethoscope
- The King of Paramistan
- Histerical Fuge
- Ode to a Turkish Spock
- Hogarth on the Cheap
- Peter’s Cushions
- Tony Heart’s Kukri
It is a shame that they never managed to complete their second album but that tends to happen a lot. An amazing first album that then cascades into making the band even more dysfunctional
We have to remember that the contributions that Kerry Scott, Ashton Ocean, Caden Bravo & Rosie South gave to Synth-pop of the early 1980s as well as mourning the fact that they never managed to get a second album
