Love Backed By Force


So both of yesterday’s posts were pretty abstract and obtuse, so today i wanted to post a little something for everybody. It’s one of the coolest pop slanted albums i’ve heard in a long time it’s called “Love Back By Force” by the Tronics. The name Tronics might ring a bell for all the Messthetics enthusiasts out there or any nerds of British DIY for that matter. If I tried (and I have) to imagine what it would sound like if the Troggs did stripped down bedroom recordings of the Television Personalities i’d imagine it would come out sounding something like “Love Backed By Force.” There are other, more left field influences on this album, too but those just add to the charm. This album comes very highly recommended.

Long Live Ziro Baby!

    essential album! soooooooooo good! i just scored a flexi-disk the other day off ebay w/ love backed by force and a few tracks by other bands. its from the zine chainsaw and has a full interview of tronics, written in ’81. i can transcribe it if your interested. he was talking about a follow up recording on a boat in the bahamas so he could be surrounded by sharks! wonder if it ever happened and if there are any demos lying around. always new you had good taste since talking ’bout rocket from the tombs on your roof! (its danny, ex-rough kids, btw)

    there are early demos, unreleased material from the original band, recorded in London in 1977. These are all Ziro Baby’s songs made when the band was called the Gits. There is a the first recording of Suzy’s Vibrator which was the first single as Tronics (in a different version).
