Amos & Sara : Sara Goes Pop

After leaving the Homosexuals in 1981, the man of hundred pseudonyms, L.Voag (aka Amos) went into a creative overdrive, releasing about a dozen of solo/collaborative albums in the first half of the eighties, mostly ultra-rare hand-made cassette-only releases. For this one (and a couple more of cassette and vinyl e.p.'s) he teamed up with singer Sara and, as the title suggests, this may be their/his most accesible work and a good place to start investigating (here is a very helpful discography overview and a rare in-depth explanatory interview for the interested). His work is completely original and not sounding like anybody else, comparable only to early Residents in approach & excellence. Coloured-vinyl double 7" in hand silk-screened cover, later (or was it first?) released also on cassette with a lot of added material. Glorious lo-fi. Amos is currently working as a member of the excellent Die Trip Computer crew.
Note: There is a similar post to this with some interesting rant, but no music.

Thank you. Some very creative songs on this album. My Pal The Crook stands out to me. You wouldn't happen to have That's Him All Over, would you?
