Kaleidoscope, released in 1980, was the band’s third album and their most successful. They released eight more studio albums over the next 15 years and have continued to tour. It’s nice to see some of these bands still making a go of it 35 years later.
I find the samples from Kaleidoscope a little more interesting than what I heard from Bauhaus, but it’s still not my cup of tea.
So far I’m finding I didn’t miss out on a whole lot in 1980.
You’re a misfit of me — I’m a misfit of you… in limbo
Carbon copies run blue — a reminder for you
But they’re only skin deep crumpled shells in a heap
Surrogate heads of a no-no domain
Shoulders form rows to make waves again
Catch the next plane
When you walked through the door marked “enter if you dare”
Reasoned with a friend marked “do not bend”
Bit on that finger marked “handle with care”
A tear soiled your cheek — a broken finger on the floor
A mess in sawdust — a shop window burst… no repairs
It’s a hybrid of me — I’m a hybrid of he
You’re a misfit for me — I’m a misfit for you
In limbo… do you speak the lingo?
