Living Dolls – tape (1984)

I was so impressed with Living Doll’s Emotional Parade ep that I jumped at the chance to obtain an original copy of their 1984 demo.  Upon posting …Parade four years ago, I remarked that this Seattle trio skirted on the fringes of new wave but deftly wielded a more organic approach.  This six-song precursor to that record (produced by Terry Date no less) illustrates that the Dolls had their act together from the get go, melding jangly arpeggios to appropriately melodic songcraft in the realm of Rhythm Corps, Split Enz, and so forth.  Highlights entail “Cost of Confusion” (later to be re-cut for Emotional Parade) and the bustling “Making Statements.”

01. Cost of Confusion
02. Rampage in Overtown
