Christian band formed at Bath University by students Adrian Wylie (from Northern Ireland) and guitarist Matt McArdle, ex of The Killjoys, the Birmingham punk band who released a fantastic single on Raw Records and are best known for harbouring future Dexys Midnight Runners leader Kevin whatshisname.
What Of The Night recorded a demo at BBC Radio Bristol Studios in 1979 which won the Best New Gospel Band in the UK award that year. They spent most of the year recording their excellent LP which was released during christmas 1979.
The album is an inventive mix of punk and garage rock in interesting arrangements and with psychedelic edges -- it could be seen as an early example of neo-psych -- but it's let down by poor production. It was released on the Ballymena-based xian label Budj Records. It's difficult to track down but not expensive and is recommended.
