Magnolia Thunderpussy

Edgy '80s synth pop from former Tubeway Army members who became Dramatis. Featuring their fully remastered debut album, singles and bonus tracks. Plus a previously unreleased BBC In Concert performance from 1982. Back in 1979, at the height of the post-punk era, Tubeway Army's 'Are 'Friends' Electric?' all but defined a new style of edgy synthesised pop for the cold war era. The band had evolved rapidly from new wave roots to lead the new charge. But then singer Gary Numan went solo, leaving his backing band to reinvent themselves as Dramatis - Chris Payne (vocals, keyboards), Russell Bell (guitars, keyboards), Cedric Sharpley (drums), and Denis Haines (keyboards). Dramatis eventually signed to Elton John's Rocket label, releasing a string of promising synth pop singles across 1981-82 and a woefully overlooked album 'For Future Reference'. Perhaps critics couldn't see past the fact they had been Tubeway Army.
