Nightmares In Wax: Birth Of A Nation 7" (320kbps)

I know this has probably been posted on other blogs, but it's an okay quality rip and one of my favs.  Nightmares In Wax was started in Liverpool in the late 70's with post-punk icon Pete Burns, pre Dead Or Alive.  The band also featured Martin Healy, Phil Hurst, Mick Reid and Pete Lloyd, with Martin Healy going on to play in DOA for a few years on keyboards.  Pete Burns has always been a very boisterous personality, but this early work captures him at his best- raw throaty voice spouting blatently homsexual lyrics and music that's filled with early deathrock overtones.  A few other versions of this EP have been released under different titles, but the three songs are the same as this original.  Timeless funny stuff- give a listen and, as always, leave comments!
