Forever 19

Another of those obscuro 1980's new wave bands, this one is really worth your time, kind of reminiscent of the Cars/Roxy Music, this album "Come as You Were Born" is a nearly criminally overlooked epic from 1985, it's almost impossible to find any info on the band (I've tried), but whatever, even though I can't find a list of their personnel, or even where they originated from, this is a likable enough album for me to share with my friends tonight........I've been awfully hard on 1980's music in this forum before, but there ARE, to be fair, a bunch of unknown/overlooked gems such as this one from that era, which I've tried to demonstrate.......this is a good album, the singer has a VERY odd voice, which made 1980's new wave what it was, I guess, and as I said, they have likely heard a few Cars/Roxy music albums in their me, is all I can say, this is a pretty good one, you
will likely not be disappointed, in particular if you are a fan of 1980's new wave, this is a GOOD one....

  2. This was pretty solid.
    Sorta reminded me of Modern English here and there.
    Surprisingly rocking leads, too!

  3. Sorry Scott, link is down. Any idea where I can get them? Can't find it anywhere else. Thanks
