Lets Wreck Mother – Flicknife Records 1985



Some bubblegum Goth-funk from ex members of Dormannu. The track Barbarella sounding incredibly like some Rip Rig And Panic or Bow Wow Wow material!

Part of the Dean Street, London, W1 Batcave scene, anyone remember The Batcave?

I have no idea what occurred to this band after this record.

    the band was short-lived as I recall, guitarist Adam went to school with my mate Dave in Berkhamsted. Adam also played guitar in Rubella Ballet sometime around ’85 but I can’t remember if it was before or after this record came out!

    I am seeing Frenchie (flicknife mainman) in a week or so and will ask him about this and if he knows where they are now.

    Let’s Wreck Mother was basically just Sexbeat under a new name, wasn’t it? Never knew they’d made a record though!

    I was friends with Adam when he was in the band , he joined Rubella Ballet after and I think he went on to join a Killling joke/Brilliant inspired band called Heist.

    however I lost touch with him years ago anyone know his surname ?

    Adam unfortunately died a few years ago. His second name was James.
    I was the drummer and Sophie was the bass player.
    We were nothing to do with Sexbeat, just Sophie was their bass player prior to us. I was the drummer in Dormannu and yeah, Adam went on to play with FPI
    The missing track is ‘Wreck Mother’ which is probably the most mental one of the three.
    I think that about covers it apart from me and Sophie are still in the land of the living and pretty much as mental as ever.
    Cheers folks XXX
