Nah=Poo-The Art Of Bluff remains one the most underappreciated albums of its time. It is a fantastic record, as fresh and powerful today as it was 36 years ago. No one sounded quite like Pete Wylie did... sometimes as sinister as Devoto, but still quite different. A trifle prententious at times lyrically, which helped to deepen the mystery of songs like "Sleeppp." Wylie was a very underrated guitarist, as demonstrated in his work on "Seven Minutes to MIdnight" and "Somesay." The whole album is great... find it.

Pete Wylie was unjustly neglected amidst the neo-psychedelic scene of Liverpool, where Ian McCulloch and Julian Cope stole the limelight. Nah=Poo is certainly a splendid album. Check the dark-punk ritual "Wind Up" (similar to Modern Eon), the glacial mixture of power-pop and dark-wave "Otherboys" (with the Wagner-ian synths), the hysterical new-wave "Why D'You Imitate The Cutout" (akin to the XTC), or "Mission Impossible" (akin to a more gothic Teardrop Explodes), occasionally reaching paroxysm levels in it's wall of sound ("Seven Thousand Names"), and sabotaged by discordant sections ("Somesay"). Actually this is a very creative record that surpasses both the debuts of Echo and The Bunnymen and the Teardrop Explodes. It's not often that someone can combine the melodic and the neurotic element so effortlessly.
