Anthony More

Artist: Anthony More
LP: 7" single
Song: "World Service" 
[ listen ]

This neat 1981 British single I picked up earlier this year was released on the independent Do It Records label, which also housed early recordings by Adam & the Ants. More's single has the look and maybe even the sound of some of the best of the early 7" releases on my favorite British indie label, 4AD. According to Wikipedia, Anthony More (aka. Anthony Moore—no relation to Roger or Demi that I could come up with in my genealogy lab) began his career with something called Slapp Happy in the '70s, then released a handful of solo LPs in the '70s and '80s (including "World Service" in 1981 from which this single is taken), after which he went on to contribute lyrics to a couple of albums by Pink Floyd. "Diving Girls" is the b-side.
