I’ll admit, I was hard-pressed to remember who The Brilliant Corners were. Aside from taking their name from a classic Thelonius Monk album, they were an early example of Indie Pop in Britain. coming from Bristol in the 1980s. They released over 10 singles between their start in 1984 and their breakup in 1990, and released some 8 albums during that time as well.

And though they were reasonably well-known in the UK, they made very little, if any dent in the U.S. where Indie-Pop wasn’t heard of yet and the market was saturated with remnants of Punk.

Tonight it’s a session recorded for the BBC in March of 1985, around the time of the release of their debut album, Growing Up Absurd.

Unfamiliar territory from the 80s – new if you haven’t heard it yet.
