Chameleons - Up The Down Escalator 12"

This was just newly acquired today from a local record show, and even though I had another Chameleons record to go on my top 10 list, I decided to put this in it's place. Such an amazing song, and one that I shamefully forget about when I think of this band. This 12" features 2 brilliant songs from their debut LP Script Of The Bridge, and a song that seems to be on several of my 12" releases in 'Prisoners Of The Sun'. Fairly hard one to get, and you won't see it often! My advice is to grab it when you do, as it's a gem to have in your collection for sure. The one comes in at number 9 on my top 10 songs of the 80's list.

Track 1, Up The Down Escalator

Track 2, Monkey land

Track 3, Prisoners Of The Sun

German Statik Records 1983, TAK 11/12

Personal rating 4.5/5
