So who is DAN TREACY? DAN TREACY is the singer/songwriter of the English Band "TELEVISION PERSONALITIES" which incidentally has four songs in the compilation. An underated musical genius behind "Whaam!" Indie record label which he launched together with ED BALL back in 1981. Hmmmp!! Not to be mistaken with George Michael's band guys. He He He!! "Whaam!" was named after the Roy Litchenstein painting. This guy should have been given great recognition on his works but instead he still remain in the underground up to date. Well, he was considered to be the inspiration for some INDIE RECORD labels for them to pursue their love of music. He was also part of the documentary film about the "CREATION RECORDS" which is also a great Indie label during those times. Dan was even tracked down by the late KURT COBAIN of NIRVANA back in 1991 just to open for the band's concert. Wheeew!! Another of those people who contributed a lot in the music industry and have stayed in the ANTI-POP world.
The CD contains 20 great tracks from 8 bands/artists that will leave you breathless. YUP!! It's another journey to the past but with a different flavor of pop. This seperates the MAN from the BOYS if you'll be talking about 80s fanatics. Definitely, you'll enjoy the ride which I think would give you a totally different perspective of what underground 80s music was back on those days. Dan Treacy's band TELEVISION PERSONALITIES together with HANGMAN'S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS has the most number of songs here with a total of four each. I uploaded the entire CD for you guys to listen to it and I hope you'll like the selection the way I did. Very interesting music indeed!!
