This Heat - Deceit (1981)
This is one of those albums that's really hard to place for me. It's clearly coming from no-wave (Hayward had worked with Eno) and post-punk, there is also some Throbbing Gristle in here, but it also stands alone for me. In fact, I don't think there is a single album between this and Liars' Drum's Not Dead that has the same kind of impact on me. Many of you have probably heard this, but if you haven't, I don't want to spoil the fun. Needless to say the influences and quotations are far and wide, but first and foremost it's a really fun album.
