Fingerprintz - Distinguishing Marks (1980) Vinyl mp3@320
With producer Nick Garvey (ex-Ducks Deluxe and Motors) leading the way, Distinguishing Marks has all the rough edges smoothed away, but not so much as to have a negative impact on the music. O'Neill's songs are still loaded with dark emotional undercurrents and melodramatic narratives, but they aren't self-pitying, narcissistic exercises. In fact, this LP marked a maturational process that continued with their third and last record. Still, no record better sums up the excellence of Fingerprintz better than this one.(allmusic.com)
I just stumbled over this in my chaos and thought it's nice to post it. Haven't heard it for a long time. I think this have more new wave and post punk style. Enjoy it.
