This sounds like Teardrop Explodes playing in a wind tunnel. The vocalist has exactly the same timbre to his voice as Cope did but where Droolian's voice sat proudly atop the mix, this one is buried amongst heaps of debris, metallic guitars and booming Steve Lillywhite style snares. Its quite a maelstrom and lord only knows what Andy's grandmother thought as according to the sleeve notes this whole racket was recorded in her house. The flip contains more good stuff. 'Need to Retire' has a bit of The Associates madcap clatter in there but reminds me of some other 80's luminaries that I can't quite place - XTC maybe. The final offering 'Minimal Armageddon' is an oddly cut up kind of mess kind of like the Liars or something like that.
