Album Notes and Credits
The Thompson Twins' debut album did little to anticipate what was to come for the new wave pop band. This record is more experimental and more guitar based than the keyboard dominated hits of Into the Gap and Here's to Future Days. A Product Of... also lacks the irresistible pop hooks of later Thompson Twins efforts, tending to remain submerged in murky tuneless noodling. There isn't an easily identifiable single on the record, let alone anything as marketable as a "Hold Me Now" or "Lay Your Hands on Me." The album has a vague sort of international theme, as demonstrated in the cover art, which features several simple outlines of human bodies adorned in a variety of different colors and outfits, seemingly hinting at the diversity of humankind. There is a hefty chunk of African influence, especially on "Slave Trade" and "Oumma Aularesso (Animal Laugh)," which is a Tom Bailey arrangement of a traditional song from Sierra Leone. Bailey also reimagines the Gregorian Chant "Vendredi Saint" as an Asian or African chant (it isn't entirely clear which). The lineup behind Bailey consists of drummer Chris Bell, guitarist/saxaphonist Peter Dodd, guitarist John Roog, saxaphonist Jane Shorter and Joe Leeway on congas. Alannah Currie, who was to play a significant role on later Thompson Twins albums, is credited with "playing and singing." ~ Evan Cater
