Actually I love all of those, except for Yellow Shark (because I heard
so few of it).
My problem is quite the opposite. I asked the early 80s question in
first place because I don't care that much about some of the 'normal'
music fz did. I listened to YAWYI once and found only a couple of
songs or so memorable, along with the Sinister Footwear one obviously.
I didn't discard it, whenever I get a chance to listen to that album
again I will do so, but I'd like to go first for the stuff that
emphasizes instrumentals more in that period.
