Dance Chapter

Artist: Dance Chapter
LP: 7" single
Song: "Anonymity"
[ listen ]

In the late 1980s and early '90s I had a large box specifically designated to hold all my 4AD records, with the label's releases arranged in chronological order according to catalog number. This Dance Chapter 7" single, catalog #AD18, was released in December of 1980, the first year of 4AD's existence. It's a good example of the label's early sound, before the popularity of Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, and Clan of Xymox took 4AD in a dreamier, swirlier direction. Read about Dance Chapter on the 4AD website here, and visit Bimble's Windy Weather blog here for more info on the group in the comments section.
