Dαvε Stεwαяt & Bαrbαяα Gαskin - Up Fяom Thε Dαяk (1986)
The debut release/compilation of former Canterbury Scene maestro Dave S. and former frontwoman of prog. folk band Spirogyra, Barbara Gaskin. It's a collection of their early-to-mid 80's singles, all of which are rather distinctive and intriguing. Contemplate a more New Wave sounding Cocteau Twins with all the tasty trimmings and you'll have an idea of how this material sounds.
Those who manage to sink their teeth into these fantastic songs should also check out their future studio albums proper as a duo - 1990's The Big Idea and 1991's Spin.
