GC: 1693 (Andrew Zealley) / The Institute Of Unusual Studies (Dianne Bos) - I'll Come Running / My Baby She Moves So Slow
Met Andrew Zealley at a recent fair he sold me his Fix Planet LP (including the 7inch). He comes to the shop often. We had no idea he made great music like this and that he was from the legendary Record Peddler shop in Toronto. He's done installations with Coil, TG and works closely with the Art Metropole zine/book shop here. Andrew and his friend Dianne Bos did this 45 as Dianne says "a FU to the music biz after their band Perfect World disbanded." They both did a side hence the title "Taking Sides". Andrew's side is a bit of a cut up homage with heavy tape editing and Dianne's Side "My Baby She Moves So Slow" sounds like an On-U dub-pop tune a la London Underground. Copies on commission sale via the artists. Top stuff and an artifact of the queer punk Toronto community scene in the 80s like Fifth Column. Don't sell out and rob your buds, stay punk! Colossal youth.
