Mofungo - Out of Line (1983)

More fun art punk for a proletariat on the go. Certainly there's enough spastic art squawks, sax skronks and heart attacking rhythms. To please anyone that liked their earlier 7" I put up here. On the whole Out of Line is a more elaborate flesh out of the noisy post-punk Mofungo sound. According to Robert Sietsema in the Perfect Sound Forever article several durable classics appear here. 'Three,' 'FBI Informant' (later known as 'He Sold His Soul'), and 'Migrant Assembly Line Workers.' Watermark and Happy Man are my picks. Lyrically there's enough left leaning political sloganeering to keep the flames of discontent alive against the man, or woman as the case may be.
Insert with lyrics included.
