Another cracking reissue from Dark Entries here. Talking Drums were a Glaswegian group that knocked about in the ‘80s, releasing two EPs and a full-length record. Courage was first put out in 1982, around the same time groups like Orange Juice were kicking it in Talking Drums’ home city. There’s a fair bit of OJ to these tunes, while the influence of NYC no-wavers like ESG is also apparent. All in all this is a good one for linking Glasgow’s first DIY golden-age with the modern-day endeavours of acts like Golden Teacher and Whilst.
