The Vault: The Au Pairs Hit The Beeb

Dec 27th, 2006 // 1 Comment

aupairs.gifThe Birmingham foursome known as the Au Pairs sang about gender equality and the binding nature of monogamy, and their two full-lengths are undersung pieces of the late-70s British postpunk catalogue.The band visited the BBC seven times, and the compilation Equal But Different collects those drum-tight sessions; among the standout tracks are the band’s too-hot-for-TV song about the female orgasm, “Come Again,” and a cover of David Bowie’s “Repetition.”
