As I've gotten more and more acquainted with the album, (this and 1979's Y), The Pop Group have become one of those near-obsessions for me, the type that outlast any real interest in current music, (though, my latest addiction has been Mission Of Burma's Vs.), and that's led me to look into other funk-post-punk Brit bands like 23 Skidoo, Throbbing Gristle and A Certain Ratio.
