I'm with Paul V and Auto Da Fe on this - Baby Sitters is my fave track of the EP!
First heard this on John Peel's Radio 1 show in Feb 1980. A few weeks later, they were featured on BBC1's mid-evening chat show "Nationwide" (how many people remember Nationwide?). And does anyone know who the female at the end of the track was who says "Mmm....that's jazz"?
Pjlazenby - Adamski's younger brother was Dominic, who was the 'vocalist' on Baby Sitters. Adam(ski) played toy ukelele and kazoo.
Incidentally, Earcom 2 (Fast 9b) goes for about £15 more than the other 2 EPs because of a Joy Division track featured on it. Only Earcom 3 was available on 7" - the previous 2 were 12" only.
Thanks for showing what the cover really looks like, jjj; also that insert. Have to disagree about Noh Mercy, tho' - "Caucasian Guilt" especially is great! BTW: why do most dictionaries etc cite a 1980s origin for the phrase 'politically correct' - presumably it was in some sort of common usage prior to its appearance in "C.G."?
I have added scans which show the bright orange mentioned by pjlazenby, along with the insert. The back would be obsolete, being just plain orange, but that may be decided by someone else. Makes it complete.
These vids are not for those of a weak disposition.
Yeah, we all hate babysitters!
The only real decent contribution by DAF I did not find a version of this record for. And notice the typo on the label, correct on front cover.
And the last side is obviously a licence from this: recordxu8
Or the other way around?
Scans now uploaded, a few notes about which...the front cover is bright orange, which my scanner seemingly can't cope with (other owners: do not adjust your set etc); the back cover has no print. At least some copies (alas, not mine) came with a postcard-sized insert.
