Medium Medium

Within the tradition of several British later-’70s bands, Medium Medium helped facilitate the bridge from new wave to post-punk using a bleak music which was light on melody, yet heavy on funk-influenced rhythms with throbbing bass. The Gang of Four provide as the least complicated reference indicate their sound, though Moderate Medium weren’t pointedly political within their lyrics, because the Gang of Four had been. Those finger-popping bass lines, detached rather than terribly hopeful vocals, and edgy tune structures produced the Gang of Four evaluations all the much easier. It’s just a little unusual that Medium Moderate have generally vanished into discographies, as the Gang of Four stay a hip touchstone for all those into new influx and post-punk. Moderate Medium evolved from the Press, and started releasing materials in past due 1979. Their second one, “Hungry, So Furious,” produced some unforeseen inroads in to the American dance marketplace in 1981, achieving the disco graphs. An record, The Glitterhouse, arrived later that season, but they were not able to capitalize for the achievement of “Starving, So Furious,” such as for example it was. Vocalist/saxophonist John Lewis quit by the end of 1981 after their first American tour. Although they continuing without Lewis for some time, thoroughly touring internationally in 1982 and placing out another one, they disbanded in 1983 within the absence of an archive deal. Lewis released records within C Kitty Trance after his departure from Moderate Medium.
