Colin Newman - Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish


On this date in 1982, Colin Newman released his second solo album, Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish. There were twelve songs, all called "Fish" and sequentially numbered. None of the "Fish" were released as singles. The guitarist and vocalist for punk/post punk band Wire did not slow down when the band was put on hiatus. He released a series of solo albums before rejoining the band when it became active again. Colin Newman's solo work was more experimental than Wire's sound.
