Minutes After…- Minutes After… LP

Been meaning to post this one for a while, but finally got around to ripping it. Random purchase, made a few months ago for a few dollars, based on the year (1988) and the cover artwork (Francis Bacon!), and found it to be pleasant enough to rip and share with you all. Here we have the lone LP by a band called Minutes After…, a melodic darkwave/post-punk band from Philadelphia.

The closest touchstone I have for the band is a sadly defunct NYC band called Bell Hollow, who were in turn influenced by the likes of For Against, The Chameleons, and Sad Lovers and Giants. A few piano chords thrown in for good measure, as well as soaring vocals on every track. It’s a solid record for fans of the more dreamy/ethereal/wistful side of post-punk, especially the first (and best) Tears for Fears record, Sad Lovers and Gaints, and the second Fra Lippo Lippi record (a must listen).

Here’s the information:

  3. My 14 year old daughter just decided that she is into vinyl. She found this album (signed) in my collection from growing up. Funny to be able to google and get a "whatever happened to" report. Thanks.

  4. I think this is my step-dad’s old band….

  5. This is my husband’s band. He is the singer and wrote most of the lyrics. He is still an awesome singer, btw.

  7. Minutes After Fan Says:

    Would be awesome if there was anymore material released from this excellent and obscure band.

  8. I have a signed album, never played.

  9. Man, I’m so happy you posted this! I’m 99% sure I was handed the cassette in 1988 at the WTC during a CMJ music conference of sorts. Lost it 10 years later in a move and have been searching for it ever since. :Her – A Dream Without Sleep is so enthralling and it’s not even my main music pref. I’m all in.

  10. I don’t remember the names of the other guys in the band (but I can see their faces) I was friends with Kenny Green. Where Are They Now?
