The Chameleons (Nostalgia E.P.)

This is a repost by request from 3/11/09.
   This is my favorite Chameleons record; "Nostalgia" is such a great song.
   The Chameleons formed in Manchester, England, in 1981 from the ashes of a number of local groups. Mark Burgess, ( vocals/bass) began with the Cliches, (Guitarists) Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding from the Years and John Lever ( Drums, who replaced founding member Brian Schofield) from the Politicians.
   After releasing three full lengths and a number of singles and Ep's; The Chameleons disbanded in 1987, following the  death of their manager Tony Fletcher. The band reformed in 2000 and released a couple more Lp's before once again disbanding in 2003.

One of my favourite bands ever. In Shreds remains one of (i think) the best crafted songs ever released. The Killers, Interpol etc: seem to be making a decent living by stealing the Chamelons guitar parts en masse. Ecellent blog you have here. Some fantastic stuff posted. I may be here sometime....
