The Wolfgang Press
64 Shouts - 321,414 Scrobbles
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.

- LyricsWant some whiskey in your water? Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see
Mama told me not to come
- LyricsPeace and love, a phoney kind of blubber
My instincts tell me to crash
You've got salt emissions and you know how to use them
I somehow think this won't last
So I'm moving south
- LyricsWho shot him in the back, peacetime
Who took him by surprise, tippy toes
You can't bury that door 3 times, hide my eyes 4 times
I'm gonna sink my teeth into Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas
Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas
