Countdown to Christmas – 19th December

Since I’m way off on the countdown this time, I’m going to introduce one new clip each day until the 24th of December. I’m eagerly awaiting Christmas (or Yule as we say) and this day is dedicated to Au Pairs. Which is one of my absolute favorite post-punk bands. They started off their career with their first album titled Playing With A Different Sex (1981) which is one of my favorite albums. I don’t think I have a lot to choose from here, since they only released two full albums and then continued with an off-shoot together with BBC by releasing their sessions with them. Which is packed with tracks from 79-81 and is titled Equal But Different – BBC Sessions 79-81 and is a release that I can recommend too.

I don’t really know more about them, but their catchy and original post-punk makes me dance when I hear them. Both their first album and their second album titled Sense And Sensuality (1982) are worth checking out. On this album, they’ve got tracks like “Instant Touch“, “Sex Without Stress” and “Tongue In Cheek” which I like very much. The tracks that I like from their first album are “It’s Obvious“, “Come Again” and “Love Song“. If you fancy this band and want to check out more songs, I suggest you buy one of their compilations. The best one of them is the Stepping Out Of Line: The Anthology which was released in 2006. It’s got a good mix between the session tracks and the tracks you need to get your doses.

This is the 19th of December and I’m the Invisible Guy.
