The Sound - Physical World 7" 1979 Tortch Records
Here is the first single from one of my top 5 favorite bands of any musical genre The Sound. This single was released in 1979 so they were right there for the movement from punk to 80's new wave if you will. The Sound is similar in style to future label mates Echo and The Bunnymen,however The Sound were better but for some reason they never got the attention they truly deserved. Anyway, this 7" is not my favorite thing that the band has ever released (From The Lions Mouth Lp is my favorite) but the opening song on this 7" called Cold Beat is a really good song. The music became much darker and brooding on the releases that followed this 7" and their 1st Lp Jeopardy.Honestly, the later more brooding music that they produced is really where The Sound fully hit the mark for me, but these earlier recordings are excellent as well...Dave G.
