Dali's Picture / Aufführung in Berlin CD
Available for the first time in thirty years, this double CD showcases The Chameleons in the early stages of their career, bursting with unbridled passion and raw energy as they explore and develop their distinctive sound. A sound that influenced a generation of musicians and still reverberates across the globe today with fans old and new.
Released with the full co-operation of the band, the album features new artwork by guitarist Reg Smiths and all tracks have been expertly re-mastered.
Disc 1 – Dali’s Picture – is a collection of early studio recordings that pre-date Script of the Bridge and features early versions of well-known songs such as Monkeyland, Nostalgia and Less Than Human as well as Dreams in Celluloid, an early take on Second Skin with entirely alternative lyrics.
Disc 2 – Auffuhrung in Berlin is a live concert from 1983 showing the band on full throttle belting out songs from Script of the Bridge and showcasing early versions of songs that would later appear on the band’s second studio album – tracks such as ‘Singing Rule Britannia’, ‘One Flesh; and ‘Perfume Garden’ performed here with many interesting lyrical differences.
