Boomkat Product Review:
The Mothmen's brilliant Manchester post-punk-dub oddity, 'Pay Attention' (1981) is pulled up for reissue by Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound. Featuring Chris Joyce and Tony Bowers - who later formed the rhythm section for Simply Red's first three albums - plus Bob Harding - who would manage the internationally renowned reggae distributor Blood & Fire - and the late David Rowbotham, The Mothmen were appreciated by those who knew their music at the time, but, due to label complications and delays, their playful, prescient mix of reggae, disco and art rock landed outside of contemporary norms to become the preserve of collectors and diggers. Now, more than a generation later, their loose, driving improvisations - a mixture of noisy, stoned riffing, sharp pop hooks and dub-chamber aesthetics - can be held up next to Wire, Gang of Four or PiL as one of the early '80s dopest contributions.
