Art Objects - Showing Off To Impress The Girls


On this date in 1980, Art Objects released their second and final single, "Showing Off To Impress The Girls". It was backed by a live track, "Our Silver Sister". The A side appeared on their only album, Bagpipe Music. The B side was added as a bonus when it was re-released on CD. While the single failed to chart, the album did reach the #19 spot on the U.K. indie albums chart. The Bristol, U.K. post-punk band was hard to describe. It was like poetry set to music, kind of like some of The Fall's work, but not exactly. When the band disbanded after two singles and one album, Gerard Langley formed The Blue Aeroplanes.
