Continuing their exhaustive search to find the roots of the dreampop/shoegazing scene, Words On Music head back to 1986 with The Lucy Show's second and final album. This London quartet created their own "wall of sound" effect with shimmering, layered guitar melodies. Most of the tracks are drenched in reverb (much like Easterhouse's 'Contenders' released in the same year) but as a result this record also feels a tad over-produced and dated. So it seems fitting that the least complicated songs ('Sad September', 'Part Of Me Now') end up being the most enjoyable; they are also free from the vocal bluster which dominate a few of the weaker tracks. The moody Comsat Angels-esque 'Shame' - an anti-Apartheid song - is their most powerful and memorable offering whilst 'A Million Things' is a quality single. The Lucy Show certainly had their moments but on this showing they seem less important than, say, The Chameleons or For Against.
