Those Helicopters - Shark / Eskimo (1980) + Technical Smack / Dr. Janov (1981)


 


Two singles from Those Helicopters, a D.I.Y. post punk outfit from England. Shark / Eskimo from 1980. Technical Smack / Dr. Janov from 1981. Great tunes all. Though Shark is a stand out for me, with it's musical oddball concoctions, and lyrical Jaws paranoia.
