A massive favorite of mine, even if I can’t put my finger on why I like it so much. Both songs are sort of slow, or medium paced at best. The vocals are pretty emotional and sounds a bit sad (despite I have no idea of what he sings about) but I’m sure they’re great as the singer later on became a writer under the hilarious monkier Thierry Tuborg. But the songs are melodic and catchy and they just keep on growing on me, and despite I’ve been playing this 7″ for close to 10 years now it still makes me as happy.

The band made lots of recordings, and there are at least 4 full compilations of their recordings, both live and from the studio, but unfortunately this was their only release during their existance. I’d recomend that you pick up one of the comps with their studio material as the band obviously knew what they were doing and had a very clear idea on how to write good songs.

The sleeve one this one is amazing by the way! And they recorded in Isis’ studio long before the rest of the western world found out about all their cool activities, as cheap studio time, flag waving, terrorism and bombing of things in general.

    This band was from Bordeaux (France)
    In the early 80’s , in this town ,all the bands had their names beginning by the phoneme
    “ST” : STrychnine , the STilettos , the STandards and Stalag.

    Great!

    Second song is about being a consumption product (“i am a sell-by-date”) and it’s like “consume me before i am done”, first song is a love song about having secrets.
