The Concertzender 25: Music of 1983..
1983 is the year in which The Fall dropped the album “Perverted By Language” on humanity. Mark E. Smith shines in classics such as “Eat Y Self Fitter”, “Smile” and “Hexen Definitive/Strife Knot”. In the summer of 1983 Daniel Johnston records “Yip Jump Music” in the garage of his brother. His fifth tape, produced on his own, contains twenty lo-fi songs about various subjects. King Kong, the Beatles, and Casper the Friendly Ghost make an appearance. The song “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances” is heartrending.
