Oh Nandu, What Have We Done?



Promise is promise. Here's the Zenamon self titled LP from 1984. As you see in the image above it was released on Polydor.... so it's not mad rare but at the same time not easy to find. Though you will find a copy at a decent price maybe even before the recent run for it (caused by the appearance of one song of this LP in a Harvey mix) is over. The whole LP has really not much to do with dance music (imho) as some may want to think. It's actually pretty mellow and also "folky" at times. Music lovers into Balearic will find reasons to call parts of it balearic as well. Anyway - when I listen to music I don't mind too much about categories - I just listen and I'm happy when the music touches me and that 's how I got to appreciate this LP. Bought it because of the fancy cover and didn't expect a bit when listening to it for the first time. Some years ago I didn't really listen to a lot of that kinda "esoteric" ; ) stuff but I somehow liked it instantly and to my surprise it got better and better. I hope I'm not ruining your first time listening by these here words. I just want to add: Don't expect too much, take your time - maybe it works.

cheers,
Basso

ps. I hope it will be reissued sometime soon

The Growing Bin is still the only place on the interweb that has posted the 1984 Zenamon album! Did you get this as a 160 rip? It would be great to hear this in higher quality as the music is so intricate, a real listening experience....there is a copy on Discogs for 80 Euros but a little out of my current price range for a single album!

Don't know if you have seen this but someone on Youtube has dug up from the memory hole a recording of the only live gig Zenamon did and this was for a German TV programme called '3NACH9' in 1984.
It is such a pleasure to watch how the musicians work with each other and the live renditions of the two tracks are just..well...exquisite.
