Dalis Car: The Waking Hour (1984)
I lament the passing of the apostrophe. Is it so hard to write Dali's Car? They took the band's name from a song on a Captain Beefheart record--entitled Dali's Car--and failed to copy the apostrophe. For some reason, I find this really irritating.
For those of you who don't know, Dali's car is half Peter Murphy, from Bauhaus, and half Mick Karn, from Japan (more on that band later). The group only recorded one record, and it's not bad. In 2011, before Mick Karn passed away (at the young age of 52), a new EP was released, but I have never heard it.
