Laugh - Take Your Time, Yeah. The Remorse Label 12". Lost 3.

Laugh were a band who managed to fall spectacularly between scenes; too angry to qualify for the C86 jelly and ice cream party and too established for the Madchester feeding frenzy. They're also the Manchester band who get closest to That Scouse Skiffle Sound that signifies the best and the worst of that bunch from The Wrong End of The M62. Think The Las, Shack and, Lord forgive me, The Coral. Except Laugh angry it up a bit and whack their drums that little bit harder and shout in your face.

They released a handful of singles and an LP which sounded like all the corners had been knocked off their sound. Too mellow, too wah-wah, too nice one mate, are you on one? This 12" is them at their punk rock best. Enjoy.

Laugh - Take Your Time, Yeah. The Remorse Label 12". Lost 3.

Thanks to Martin at Songs From Under The Floorboards for the sleeve pics.
