Rough Trade (1982)


A few weeks ago, Kat posted an amazing Rough Trade single. But I could not pass this one up. I don't get any of the references--the French military-man silhouette, the European coins--but , who cares!?! ( If anyone can fill me in , please do) . I do like how they decided to back the A side with an AA side. And notice Robert Wyatt in the credits on guest keyboards.
PS thanks to my former roommate Daniel for leaving this prized 7- inch in my personal stacks this past summer. I owe you one.

  1. I think Wes Anderson adapted this label design into a feature-length movie.
