Mary Goes Round- 70 Suns in the Sky LP

Fulfilling a request for today with the first full length from late 80s coldwave band Mary Goes Round, released in 1989 on Lively Art Records. Mary Goes Round existed under various monikers as far back as 1986, supporting Sonic Youth on select tour dates. The band, consisting primarily of Jérôme Avril and Cécile Balladino (with various other members coming and going throughout their career), released a handful of albums and a few singles before calling it quits in 1991. These days, Jérôme is involved with a new project, entitled Brachko.

    Mary goes Round should have been more successful, in the early 90s …

    Hi there, love the site and all the sweet music to discover! Recently been digging all the coldwave bands and was particularly interested in finding more albums from Mary Goes Round. Especially their “Sunset” mini LP. It’s pretty hard to find but I suppose it did get re-released on the compilation double album “Way to wonderland…” I dunno, maybe I should track that down. Well, take care!

    Really love Mary Goes Round's 'Sunset' album, unfortunately I can't seem to be able to download '70 Suns…', it says the file is corrupt!
    Asylum Party's 'Borderline' is one of my favourites too, but my vinyl is battered and unplayable now 🙁
