Fischer Z - Red Skies Over Paradise (1981) Retail CD
This is one of the best CDs to flow out of the Punk/New Wave explosion of the late 70s/early 80s. The third album by Fischer-Z, it achieved great acclaim in Continental Europe but mystifyingly failed to chart in the UK, despite achieving critical applause...Fischer-Z combined punk, new wave and reggae styles with catchy melodic tunes. The powerhouse of the band is John Watts, whose swooping vocals rail angrily against perceived injustices in the world and the continued investment in the arms race by the superpowers. Of the songs,the lyrics of "Berlin" perfectly capture the then goldfish-bowl atmospheremore… of that West German city isolated in the middle of the Eastern Bloc,whilst the words of "Battalions of Strangers" agonisingly describe the loss and desperation of war. A great rhythm section of Dave Graham (bass) and Steve Liddle (drums) back up the clanging guitar of Watts to provide a foot-tapping cornucopia of tunes.Often grouped with other left-field bands of their time such as XTC and Devo,Fischer-Z are less whimsical than the former, less wacky than the latter, but have more tunes and emotion than both. This CD is one of the finest records of the 80s, tugging on a raw nerve and a million miles from the fluff and glitz with which that decade is often associated.Quite simply, this is a great album.
