The Wolfgang Press

Enigmatic, moody, and challenging, Britain's Wolfgang Press were one of the most mercurial talents of the post-punk era, restlessly moving from gothic noise to dark balladry to eccentric funk; paradoxically, the group was also the 4AD label's longest tenured artist -- even their stylish album packages were all the product of the same designer, Alberto Ricci.

Formed in London in 1983, the Wolfgang Press comprised vocalist Michael Allen, guitarist Andrew Gray, and keyboardist Mark Cox. Allen and Cox first teamed in the group Rema Rema, which also featured Adam & the Ants alum Marco Perroni; after reuniting in the short-lived quartet Mass, the duo recruited Gray, and as the Wolfgang Press issued their cacophonous, gloomy debut LP, The Burden of Mules, in 1983. An EP trilogy co-produced by Cocteau Twin Robin Guthrie followed in quick succession: while 1984's Scarecrow was a lighter, more streamlined affair, 1985's Water spotlighted ominously sparse torch songs, and the same year's Sweatbox explored deconstructionist pop.

The Wolfgang Press' second full-length effort, 1986's Standing Up Straight, incorporated industrial and orchestral influences into the mix, while the Big Sex EP's "God's Number" offered a soulful backing chorus, a harbinger of things to come. Indeed, after 1988's hypnotic Bird Wood Cage and its leadoff single, "King of Soul," introduced strong elements of dub, reggae, and R&B, the trio took the full plunge into the dance arena with 1991's Queer, an idiosyncratic outing admittedly inspired by De La Soul's landmark 3 Feet High and Rising; the first single, a surreal cover of the Randy Newman-penned "Mama Told Me Not to Come," was a minor hit. 1995's Funky Little Demons completed the Wolfgang Press' transition into white funk; prior to its release, however, Cox exited the group's ranks. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

No offense, fellows, but look at the tracklisting of the "Everything Is Beautiful" best-of compilation. You can get a pretty good idea of what The Wolfgang Press consider to be the heart of their work. It's largely the latter era, what they matured into. You can complain all you like and say that *you* consider their early work to be "the true Wolfgang Press", but that's not for you to decide, is it?
I have their 4 12" EP's and they are what I consider Wolfgang Press to truly be!

I will definetly check out REMAREMA.
Seriously, has anyone at pandora listened to anything other than their last two albums? Perhaps any of their previous 4 ALBUMS and 4 EPS!!!

Everything on this station sounds like their pop-motown-c e n t r i c disco garbage they made for Queer and Funky Little Demons. Every other album was brilliant. Burden of Mules and Standing Up Straight always get me. And their previous incarnation Rema Rema was beautiful and eccentric.

Please fix this station Pandora! Now you're playing LFO? Really?
