Cult favourite Suburban Lawns have their 1980 debut album reissued by Futurismo. Suburban Lawns is a wonderful thing, a tight, rubbery, bouncing example of an underground new wave / post-punk group in their creative prime. Available as a CD, or as Green Sprinkler or Silver Flying Saucer coloured 180g vinyl.

7/10 Ben Straughair Customer review, 21st June 2018

Suburban Lawns are a recent discovery for me, and reading Jacks customer review, I'd agree with the vibe and inferences to particular bands. I like the quirk, the sardonic political/philosophical lyricism and Dada'ish delivery. The bands music is most definitely of the era, but translates to the now without issue (should that be Tissue?). Absurdist, surreal, comical and all round good fun, there are some fillers on the album but classics like 'Flying Saucer Safari', 'Janitor' and 'Jam The Controls' raise the rating.

I would recommend listening to this album as a remedy for malaise, apathy to contemporary culture and by way of discharging the depressive. Channel your inner Tom (The Burbs) Hanks, Kelly (Weird Science) LeBrock, Andrew (Weekend at Bernies) McCarthy and Mia (Ferris Beullers Day Off' Sara and get your 'Cabbage Patch, 'Sprinkler' and 'Robot' on... and, if only for the duration of the LP, delight in a new wave of temporary reprieve from the mundanities of the modern. Perhaps even get the family involved, after all, its all relative int'it.


6/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd April 2018

When the vocalist "Su tissue" takes the lead this stuff is fantastic ... green eyes... janitor... baby... when she doesn't a lot of these songs take on a familiar aspect of the era - nothing too original sort of like Devo fronted by the B-52s Fred Schneider. You have wiry guitar and herky jerky time signatures. All of which are pretty good but not great! In my opinion this band is so much better with Su's vocals and phrasing - which was really unique - sort of like Nico meets Nina Hagen if you had to describe it.
