On back sleeve: "The two albums and singles released by Virgin Records of The Flying Lizards, David Cunningham's nexus of art, punk, experimenta, using 'Pop' music as his medium. Tracks 1-1 to 1-10 originally released on Virgin Records V 2150 (1980). Track 1-11 originally released on Virgin Records DK4809 (1980).

The Flying Lizards was an experimental new wave, post-punk pop group from London, UK, which existed from 1976 to 1984. The group was formed and led by David Cunningham, whose concept was to have a loose-knit line-up: the group included avant-garde and free-improvising musicians like David Toop and Steve Beresford (both of General Strike), as well as keyboard player Julian Marshall (of the duo Marshall Hain) and the late painter Michael Upton.

The Flying Lizards' first album unwittingly followed one of the greatest traditions of '50s and '60s pop - take a hit single, surround it with a whole bunch of filler less interesting than the hit, and presto! You have an album. Too bad Cunningham didn't prove to have as much vision as, say, Count Five or the Royal Guardsmen, who did better with the quickie album concept than he did. Track Listing.

The Flying Lizards were originally a one-off project by minimalist composer David Cunningham it actually did pretty well, so they wanted a followup, and he did "Money (That's. and that single did even better. Of course, based on the sales of the first album, Virgin wanted a follow-up, so he recorded Fourth Wall. Fourth Wall was a much more mature album - more straightforward.

The text in the bottom left quadrant of the artwork appears to be from Roland Barthes' Musica Pratica.
Gardataur
but you can still make money by singing sweet songs of love.......

Why doesn't anyone mention the fact that Vivian Goldman sung and co wrote two of the best tracks on this lp??
Matty
Left out on purpose. Doubt it. Probably contractual. But these song did appear on her own compilation album a year or two ago.

This album is criminally underrated. "Her Story" and "The Window" are incredible - this band's NOT a one hit wonder. Lizard Heads unite.http://www.theunexcused.com/why-dont-you-like-the-flying-lizards/

Lizard heads unite... such a good invention...I'm a Lizardhead and we're a Lizard Army now!:D :D :D
