Lemon Kittens - We Buy A Hammer For Daddy

From Allmusic.com : "The Lemon Kittens' We Buy a Hammer for Daddy was the second release on the United Dairies label (the first being the mythical debut album by Nurse With Wound, Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella) when it was still managed by NWW founding members Steven Stapleton and John Fothergill (the latter eventually handed over the imprint to Stapleton). The UD mission statement spoke of the aim "to release LPs of very progressive/experimental music that do not fit into the neatly labelled boxes of record company A&R men." A perfect description for the Kittens' bizarre mix of chalkboard saxophones, spacy flutes, chunky guitars, and claustrophobic close-miked keyboards, topped off with vocals by Karl Blake (mildly hysterical) and Danielle Dax (curiously detached). The tracks, with one exception all under four minutes duration, are all highly original and have little precedent either in or beyond the annals of British pop/rock (enthusiastic reviews of the time compared the group to the Pop Group, Stockhausen, and Anthony Braxton). We Buy a Hammer for Daddy belongs with Alternative TV's Vibing Up the Senile Man and the first This Heat LP as one of the milestones of experimental rock music."

"We Buy A Hammer For Daddy" was released by United Dairies in 1980, then re-released by Biter Of Thorpe in 1993.
