Step Chant Unit - Painting Pictures (1985)


Finally, a new post. This 12" is pretty pop for this blog, but visits us all the way from New Zealand, so the least I can do is give it a fair shake. Step Chant Unit were a pop/wave group featuring Zed Brookes (bass, vocals), Neville Sergent (drums, percussion), Sue Toms (keyboards) and a succession of guitarists, including Brian Brighting, Mark Wilson and Roy Forlong. The band was active from 1983-1987, releasing this record and a cassette called "I.C. Dream" in '83, which I do not have to share, unfortunately. The title track spent some time in the NZ charts, and reminds me a bit of The Psychedelic Furs. The b-side contains a slightly darker track and a pretty nice spaced-out/filtered mix of Painting Pictures. Enjoy!



Track List:

A1 - Painting Pictures
B1 - The Game
B2 - Painting Pictures (Alternative Mix)

You can hear Step Chant Unit in context with other NZ synth-pop from the time on a fake LP comp that I put together on my site over here: http://switchedout.blogspot.co.nz/2015/10/you-were-dancing-with-my-mind-24.html
