Description

Formed in the same Athens scene that spawned the B-52s and REM, Pylon were America's best answer to the knotty, gnarly post-punk of British bands like Gang of Four and New Order. But Pylon retained Athens' fun-loving vibe: their songs were complex and sounded like they might electrocute you, but you could dance to them, and they always sounded like they were having a party you wanted to be a part of. Their second album leans a little more psychedelic, befitting the dinosaur statue and clouds on the cover of the album. But it's also heavy on the gnarly post punk that made them a powerhouse. Out of print on vinyl since the late '80s, it's back on vinyl here thanks to our pals at New West.
