Life Without Buildings

So good to see 'Any Other City', the sole album by Life Without Bulidings, get a re-release and reappraisal earlier this year.

For years I have found this album utterly enchanting and it frequently draws me back in for repeated listening. I still have no idea what vocalist (can I call her a singer? Is what she does classed as singing?) Sue Tomkins is on about, but that is an intrinsic part of the charm. The whole thing gives me an image of Bow Wow Wow's Annabella Lwin musing over backing tracks created by seminal post rock band Aerial M, with a health dose of post punk thrown in for good measure.
