Flying Lizards and Michael Nyman – Hands 2 Take
A brief section of this piece has been featured before but I thought I’d include a bit more as a contrast the the cringe worthy chart countdown of 1981, the year in which this piece surfaced as a single . This illustrates the kind of experimentation that was going on outside the mainstream charts and the fusion of art and music that we seem to hear much less of these days. The piece itself features singer Patti Palladin and David Cunnigham’s reworking of a Michael Nyman backbone.
oh yes, it also features one of my favourite dodgy lines:
“Sitting down, not standing is a common dwarf disguise!”
