Tuesday Night Music 3 2 10

Shiekback - Nemesis. Not only is this one of the coolest songs of the 80's, but it scores big for being a sideways homage to a 2000 AD character and using the term "Parthenogenesis" in context.

Shriekback were weird, weird, weird, but also highly influential and rife with strange ideas and penetrating insights. Check out this intro to the Nemesis video to see what I'm talking about. Better yet, go find 'Oil and Gold' and check out how Michael Mann used music from that album in 'Manhunter.'
