never heard of it. now i was really surprised about the qualitiy of this record. as loveless said: growing stronger with every track. there are just 2 or 3 weaker songs - the rest is good or very good stuff.

Well I was a bit sceptical the first couple of tracks, but then it just kept getting better (and more interesting) track by track. Will be replaying this.

Released in 1980, 'Underwater Moonlight' is an album that has stood the test of time remarkably well and still sounds fresh and inventive. Reminscent of the work of Television and Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, the band manage to straddle the early new-wave of the former and the psychedlic whimsy of the latter with the discordant fragmented blues of Beefheart to produce a distinctive and accomplished music. The band could arguably be said to have invented the '80s 'paisley' movement.
