THE SHAPES SONGS FOR SENSIBLE PEOPLE Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
The core of The Shapes was made up of non-too-serious effluvia that was discharged from certain local public school. The band was active between the years 1977 to 1981.
Some critics credit The Shapes as having been the founders of a sub-genre of punk known as "punkpathetique" and it is certainly true that the band deliberately steered a course away from the proselytising and semi-politics of the punk bands that had preceded them.
In his lyrics Seymour Bybuss wrote about the general silliness of life. In his febrile imagination, the world
was one big comic cartoon, to which he added a supporting cast of freaks, aliens and superheroes.
Listen carefully and enjoy the sound of a band who were recklessly dedicated to praising all things yampy, who were driven by a refreshingly exuberant naivety, and for whom, some 35 years later, this LP finally closes the chapter of musical history entitled The Shapes?
