Ian Broudie, lead singer/songwriter, had departed Deaf School and started up this ahead of it's time band, by the time their second long player was released the sound had been honed into something resembling the Raybeats meets Tenpole Tudor, all twangin guitars, big beat drums and semi chanting vox treatments, I fully dug it, especially in the search for all this wonderful new music that was flooding out of the U.K in the immediate Post Punk vacuum . . . . as I said, sadly for them, they crashed and burned commercially.
Nonetheless, Broudie would go on to do production work for another of my greats of the day, Echo and the Bunnymen among others . . . . more significantly however, Ian Broudie would eventually recieve the recognition he deserved by founding the semi legendary Lightning Seeds circa 1980 or thereabouts. I still so dig the work he did with the Mirrors, take a listen to the title track for 'Heart-Twango & Raw-Beat', fuckin great shit, and different as all get out back in the day . . . . for now, go off and have a bit of knees up with those wascally wapscallions, The Owiginal Miwwors and 'Dancing with the Webels' !!!
