Rip Rig + Panic, I Am Cold (1982)
I first saw them on The Young Ones and it blew my mind, a lot of the music did on that show. But this cut in particular – and though I sought them out, have heard some Rip Rig + Panic (and have heard the album by Roland Kirk that inspired their name this is the first time I’ve owned anything by the band. I was reminiscing just recently about the impact of The Young Ones, its music a huge part – inspired selections, very British, very cool – and then I found this record, staring out at me from the shelves of the local and it never had before. Didn’t take long to add this to my collection then. A terrific record. Weirdly, you could say I’ve been craving this for some 30+ years. Though that’s a bit of an exaggeration there’s something in it still.
