This was the debut missive from Cork based pop protagonists Microdisney and captures at their spindly best before they started getting fascinated with sophisticated pop. These debut recordings are lovely and unusual and showcase the heavily accented vocals of singer Cathal Coughlan. This re-issue comes with bonus B sides and Peel Sessions.
The Clock Comes Down the Stairs was the second album by Cork based 80s pop gurus Microdisney and begins the move from the masterful indie pop they purveyed on Everything is Fantastic to the more sophisticated Steely Dan/Prefab Sprout soft pop they would work with on later albums. Like their other work it combines sweet melodies with dark lyrics from wonder-voiced frontman Cathal Coughlan.
