Repost: NYAM NYAM "Hope of Heaven" (UK, 1984)


Perhaps they are mostly remembered nowadays for the single "Fate/Hate" they cut for the famous Factory (Benelux) label in 1984, Nyam Nyam`s though best argument against oblivion is the great LP "Hope of heaven" they released in same year on Beggars Banquet indie branch Situation Two.
Nyam Nyam`s melodic post punk knows here some fine piano driven acoustic moments, others tracks though have an experimental approach, especially the closing song "The Resolution" which moves, unexpectedly, their new wave romantism toward a haunted folkish land.

Nyam Nyam had one more Situation Two release: the EP "The Architect "(1985). After that they probably disappeared.

Update 2012: "Hope Of Heaven" (+ singles) has been reissued!

Thanks, I had their "Architect" EP but never got round to buying the album before it was deleted. Looking forward to hearing this for the first time.

I bought this album when it first came out and liked it. But then lost, sold, or tossed it somewhere along the line. It's interesting to hear it again 25 years later. I still think the songwriting is good, but the thing that stands out to me now is how weird the mix is. The guy is obviously a bass player because it's the lead instrument on this album and the piano plays backup. The album's a little lopsided and eccentric sounding. Gloomy as hell too, but that's the kind of thing I liked in the 80's. Thanks for posting it!
