Angelic Upstarts Reason Why? on 2LP
Against all odds, Reason Why? marked a remarkable return to form in 1983 by Angelic Upstarts with crystal-clear production and a brace of adroit songs, not least "Woman In Disguise," a stinging attack on one Maggie Thatcher, and a foray into genuine electrified folk on "Solidarity." Elsewhere, Thomas 'Mensi' Mensforth tries his hand at poetry on a tale of unemployment entitled "Geordies Wife," sings the praises of crime on "The Burglar" and enlists the aid of a guest vocalist Terry Sharpe for the reggaefied title cut "Reason Why?" Deluxe double vinyl reissue from Let Them Eat Vinyl complete with a plethora of bonus tracks!
