Amos and Sara by any other name; The Fear Merchants is,again, Amos backed up by various unamed individuals, plus the mysterious Sara on Vocals. Amos plays the role of a, probably ,ex-nazi extermination camp doctor, come psychiatrist; hamming it up ,like Larry Olivier in the Marathon Man on nitrous-oxide, between tracks on various themes of mental illness....hence the title of the album:"Mental". If you played this to your mum she would probably think you or the band were indeed, Mental!
There is no track insert with this C-30 cassette, so dunno what the tracks are called, but from what i can make out, "U-Boat Kapitan" and "Schizoid Personality" are the stand out numbers.(trk 7 & 12).
It seems to have enough logic for this to be a soundtrck to a very off-west end musical production about mental health........i'd go and see it anyway!
(nb. There are two cassettes between £13 and £17 that weren't released, (£15) "Skim Nomrod and the Corolettes -"Copydex Wonderland", and the excelently titled,Ron Dealo - "The Punishing Strings of Ron Dealo"(£16). Does anyone out there have access to any of these?)
