The Chameleons: Script of a Bridge

The Chameleons were one of the finest bands that ever came out of Manchester.  In fact, I'm pretty sure that if they'd had the same level of backstage drama and their singer had committed suicide, today they'd be remembered as romantically as Joy Division.  Their debut album 'Script of a Bridge' was one of those records like 'Abbey Road,' 'Dark Side of the Moon,' Lou Reed's 'Transformer,' or the first Velvet Underground, that's simply flawless from start to finish.  Tight production value, insightful lyrics, and refined technical ability.  Basically everything that made British post-punk so great.  If you're at all into Joy Division, New Order, The Stone Roses, Magazine, etc., you need to check this shit out.
