The Raincoats - Odyshape


On this date in 1981, The Raincoats released their second album, Odyshape. The album did not produce any singles. The band went through a series of lineups. The London post-punk band originally included Nick Turner on drums (later of The Barracudas) and then Richard Dudanski (later of Public Image Ltd) before Palmolive (ex-Slits) became the drummer and made it an all-girl band. Musicians on this album included Charles Hayward (of This Heat) and Richard Dudanski. They disbanded in 1984 after four albums. They re-formed in 1993 and released some new material. They have performed together a few times since.
