Jesus On The Payroll


Here's the source of that piano sample from Bocca Juniors' debut single Raise which I posted yesterday- Thrashing Doves 1987 single Jesus On The Payroll. The band were active between 1986 and 1991 and were almost fatally wounded when Margaret Thatcher praised a song of theirs on Saturday Superstore. Death knell for their funky rock pretty much. They also had a revolving door for bass players, one of whom (James Eller) went on to play with Julian Cope and The The and another (Gail Ann Dorsey) who played with David Bowie (and I think Paul Weller but I may be wrong). Guitarist Ian Button ended up with Death In Vegas. The rest of the band got into writing for TV and film. Before all of that though there was this, and very good it is too.
