In about 1988, when Young Weasel was a toddler, we would listen to "Man in a Jar" together, from the SAHB album, "The Impossible Dream" YW loved it. Neither of us got to see Alex and the band live, but what footage there is shows how much energy and sheer spine-tingling excitement he generated. My other favourites were "Action Strasse" and "Faith Healer" and "The Tomahawk Kid". There is no getting away from the wealth of references to German Expressionism and the Commedia dell'arte. The songs were performed, not played. Alex was the Brechtian buccaneer, the master of ceremonies, Zal Cleminson the enigmatic clown, the zany of sorrow. The driving rhythm section ensured that they wouldn't stray too far from the script, delivering all you could want from a purely musical perspective.
Here's Vambo. The video and sound quality is not the best, but it was a long time ago.
