This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… The Leather Nun November 12, 2011

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Looking for something else altogether recently, I found a tape with some stuff from Swedish band The Leather Nun. All of it I think from their ‘Force of Habit’ album. It had one of those album covers (visible here)  that certainly in my house in the mid eighties wouldn’t have gone down too well had it been seen by the authorities. There was also a more explicit poster along with the album. Luckily my friend bought it and was able to smuggle it in to his house without a problem.
I’d forgotten how good some of the songs were, ‘Pink House’ was one of my favourite tracks for years, aside from the catchy guitar lines it had some great lyrics

Rosey cheeked vigins in moral majority T-Shirts.
It makes want to hear Barry Manilow until my brain hurts.
I’m forced to live on the porch of a Pink House.
Please Please SAVE ME from the PINK HOUSES!!

Needless to say it was a pisstake of John Cougar Mellencamps “Pink Houses
Their cover of ABBA’s ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ was I think their biggest hit.
You can read a bit about them here and here
