Before Blancmange began wowing eighties popkids with such hits as Living On The Ceiling and Waves they were involved in an experimental adventure they prosaically called Irene And Mavis. What would the old ladies in the laundarette pictured on the sleeve have made of it? "Put it back in the wash, dear", they might have said. It's minimal madness that belongs on Industrial records. I can assure you of this as I snapped up a copy from a generous dealer for £20 about two years ago. It sells on ebay for £88.96.
