Tones On Tails - Lions 7"

Released : 1984
Genre : Post Punk, Gothic Rock
Label : Beggars Banquet
Producer : Tones On Tail

Do you think Basic Channel invented techno dub? If you do, I'm sure you're gonna question that thought after hearing Lions. It's mood is like you're so stoned that you've reached the borderline between wake and sleep. The bassline is to my knowledge the earliest electronic sub-bassline in music history. There's also a mandolin in there as well. I can't really say that this song was influential, but it sure is a precursor to things to come.


1. Lions
2. Go (Club Mix)
