THIS IS OUR MUSIC: THE CHAMELEONS – “Perfume Garden”.

Song from the album What Does Anything Mean? Basically (1985).

Easily the high point of the Chameleons’ fascination with digital delays, pedals, and making the studio an instrument, the band’s second album still is seen by many a fan as being just a little too lost in the production to have the same impact as Script of the Bridge  did, despite equally excellent songs.

The gentle intro to the absolutely wonderful “Perfumed Garden,” lyrically one of Burgess’ best nostalgic pieces, it rapidly becomes clear exactly which band is doing this.
