Mecano Ltd – Face Cover Face 7″



Another band I know jack shit about. From Holland and you know it’s hard to go wrong with those eraly dutch punk bands. Face Cover Face can be found on Killed By Death Vol. 14.


Mecano Ltd later stripped their name to just Mecano and have released records until 1996: Mecano Discography.


Anyway this is an excellent two sider with Face Cover Face taking the lead with the hooky bass in the chorus. “Face cover face. Space sucks space. Plastic eats flesh. Spastics need trash.” Yeah!

    Great single, especially “Face Cover Face”! I never understood why the “I’m Sure We’re Gonna Make It” CD comp on Epitaph chose “Fools” over the more superior tune. Didn’t the guys who played on this single also bash away on the amazing Helmettes 7″? (also on the No Fun label)

    I went to Amsterdam from the south of France in the early 80’s to meet the singer of this band, Dirk Polak. The guy received me in his house, asked his wife to make some coffee, and we spent a whole afternoon speaking about music and art while his young daughter was playing around.

    This one is great, and I’m so glad that I found myself a copy of this record some months ago. I have the insert if you don’t have it Peter (or maybe you just didn’t bother to scan it when you posted it all those years ago).
