Leatherface - I Want The Moon

Sunday, time for a classic!

"Wrong name, wrong face, wrong time, wrong place." Is the first line of today's classic "I Want The Moon", taken from the English punk band LEATHERFACE's third full-length album "Mush". It was originally released only in Britain on Roughneck, a subsidiary of Fire Records, in 1991. It was re-released on Seed Records, an offshoot of Atlantic Records, in 1992, in an unsuccessful attempt to capitalize on the popularity of NIRVANA in the United States.

The Guardian called it an album "which has influenced every hardcore, post-hardcore, call it what you want, punk group that exists anywhere across the globe." Kerrang rated it as one of the 50 best albums of 1991.

In 2012, Sarah Anderson of NME named it one of "20 lost albums ripe for rediscovery", and the same magazine named it the 49th best album of 1991 in 2016.

LEATHERFACE were a British punk rock band from Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, fronted by Frankie Stubbs. Trouser Press called them "England's finest, most exciting punk band of the 90s" and The Guardian has called them "the greatest British punk band of the modern era."

Enjoy today's tune "I Want The Moon", taken from the album "Mush".
