It's Immaterial-Driving Away From Home

In a car on a motorway on a grey rainy day, I listen to this song and curse that I live on an Island. This is It's Immaterial's biggest hit and was released in 1985, it's the kind of synth-rock that was popular back then and is currently influencing many current bands. It's Immaterial didn't ever really break out of the underground and stopped releasing material around 1990. A small biog and discography can be found here. Driving Away From Home has an eccentric English charm to it, John Campbell's voice is kind of melancholy in a slightly similar way to Morrissey's. You can still get the album this is taken from Life's Hard and Then You Die.

Secret track 1
Secret track 2

I'm not going to tell you who these are by or any information other than they're both from the same band, it's new stuff and you really really should listen to them. The second one makes me think of Bugsy Malone-just as a thought to put out there, see what you think. I will probably post information on them in the future.

Do you happen to have a full copy of "Golden Touch"? The first verse seems to be missing from the mp3 posted.
