The Au Pairs Newcastle University 1981

The Au Pairs were hot stuff, very hip and trendy, in 1981 at the time I saw them at Newcastle University. They had just released their highly acclaimed first album Playing with a Different Sex. In my mind I categorise them alongside The Mekons, The Slits, The Raincoats and Gang of Four, all of whom I saw around that time. The Au Pairs were quite political and their music pretty challenging, more of a thinking person’s night out than fun methinks. Must try and find a copy of their album and remind myself of them.
