The August Album Challenge: 17. Final Album From A Band

A final album from a band? Wow, that's a tough challenge for today, but one, my fellow lovers of all things musical, that I am perfectly willing to rise to.

Sometimes Final albums can be a bit disappointing, not only the fact that the band you like is going to be no more but sometimes they just sound tired and patchy. Our choice today is neither of those!

So, how do you follow an album like Copper Blue, or even the Mini-Album/EP Beaster? Both had been recorded at the same time but released 6 months apart but they had broke the Top Ten in the UK. Copper Blue stalled at #10 whilst it's baby brother Beaster reached #3! For their final hurrah, after a false start, they released File Under Easy Listening, it reached #7 in the UK Album Chart.

It would have been hard to beat Copper Blue, which I still think sounds incredible, but F.U.E.L. came close.

The band wrapped up as David Barbe wanted to spend more time with his family and Bob Mould wanted to expand his solo career (he's still out there blasting out fantastic music). Drummer Malcom Travis moved on to other projects as well.
