Altered Images - Pinky Blue - 1982

Tonight's posts are going to be a trip to the deep past of New Wave Pop.  You'll feel as if you are in a time warp again (pun intended) once you get listening to these two beauties.

I don't have much to say about this shitty album, other than I like it.  It's the prime example of everything wrong with 80s music, and I EAT IT UP.  Pure 80s bubble gum psuedo-New Wave (if you can even call it that) that sounds like crap, but you can't help but sing along with it.  No 80s collection is complete without it.

Used the same crap cover that I always hated, but the album wouldn't be complete without it.  Plus, all the covers to the singles.  I've got all the mixes, b-sides and the album itself.

Listen to it once and delete it off your computer.  Maybe.


  1. Oh Come on, even John Peel Liked this fine Scottish band. The bass player went on to form One Dove years later. How can you not love this band. I must add if you like this band you would likely enjoy Cinnamon.

    1. Don't get me wrong, I do like this album. It's just that I'm surprised that I do, considering.

  2. I'm kind of ehhhh on this album. It's fun, but I MUCH prefer their later album "Bite." Still, this one is great to play at parties. It gets people giggling and talking about how great (or atrocious, depending on what kind of music you listened to back then) the early 80s were.

  3. Altered Images were great back in the day and all three albums have some great stuff on them - though a little dated nowadays.
