Rupert Hine: Waving Not Drowning (1982)
Waving Not Drowning was the first Rupert Hine record I ever heard from end-to-end. I have to thank Pete, my residence-mate, who always supplied me with a constant stream of interesting music. It's a really fabulous record, and I recall being immediately captivated by track one on side one. Hine's music is filled with all sorts of bizarre moments and odd production, topped with what I can only describe as an enigmatic voice.
Sadly, I cannot find a youtube video of Eleven Faces, the track that I like best from this record.
