The Teardrop Explodes – Kilimanjaro (1980)
Not a true post-punk album in my eyes, but a great record nonethtless. The angular guitars and prominent base that dominated other post-punk records is replaced by a slightly poppier sound, almost watered-down - one guitar is replaced by a keyboard, and the bass fades slightly into the background, and some trumpets even make a guest appearance - but don't let that put you off; this is a very accessible, very good album. The Teardrop Explodes also did a very good Peel Session, which I much prefer - if you want it posting, let me know. Enjoy.
