Newly released from captivity, the acclaimed 1983 avant-punk masterpiece album featuring the dark and humorous genius of Narki Brillans, C.D.Greyt, and Yakko Banovic, with special guest Sara Fancy.
The lone Just Measurers LP, originally an edition of 300 copies on the Its War Boys label, has rarely been seen in the wild during the past 3 and a half decades, (although was recently spotted on Discogs for $450!).
The band consists of members from other essential under-the-radar 80s UK DIY luminaries, such as Milk From Cheltenham, The Homosexuals,The Murphy Federation, Die Trip Computer Die, L.Voag, Amos and Sara, The Work….
Playful and unsettling, the 16 tracks contained within are as vibrant and challenging as the day they were conceived. Who knows where The Just Measurers may have dragged us to had they followed up with further records? We never got to find out, as they had the good grace to split at the top of their game, leaving this essential document of their collective and vibrant minds.
Emotional Response are thrilled to exhume this essential body of work. Don’t miss out this second time around!
