Shriekback - The Dancing Years flac mp3
The Dancing Years is not just a bad compilation but a downright deceptive one. From the outside, it appears to contain some of Shriekback's best songs, including hard-to-find ones like "Nerve" and "Petulant. It's not until you actually play it that you realize you've paid for re-recorded versions that put the songs through a brutal meat grinder, replacing the band's top-notch playing with simplistic programmed riffs and their innovative rhythms with cliched techno beats. A few easily obtainable album tracks are thrown in for good measure, along with a couple of "alternate" mixes that are indistinguishable from the originals. The only intriguing musical moments here are the long version of "Fish Below the Ice" - which is also on the far superior The Best of Shriekback Vol. 2: Evolution - and some live tracks from 1987 that include a lengthy, swirling "Feelers" and a delicate "Faded Flowers.

They were joined by Martyn Barker on drums in 1983
Oil & Gold, the third full-length Shriekback studio album, is widely considered the band's highest moment. Released in 1985 on Arista Records in UK and Europe, Australia and New Zealand and on Island Records in the United States, after 1984's Jam Science on Arista Records, Oil & Gold saw the band metamorphose from contemplative to rocking.
