From Scotland, Fire Engines were one of the most original bands of their period. Whiplash is an 11-track compilation of music recorded during 1980 and 1981, including two 7-inch singles and most of the selections from their brilliant album Lubricate Your Living Room (A3-B3 here). With the 1981 single “Meat Whiplash”/“Candyskin”, Fire Engines evolved their collisive, raucous and repetitive sound into avant-garde pop mania, but stalled soon after. Presented by Codex Communications and Pop:Aural.
