Angie Pepper & the Passengers - It´s Just That I Miss You


The Passengers were born from the Sydney inner city punk culture
in 1979. They were the first band released by Phantom Records.
The Phantom label began some time after the shop with a single
by the Passengers in early 1980.
Taking their name from an Iggy Pop song,
the band was fronted by Angie Pepper, and also included former
Survivor and future New Christ Jim Dickson on bass,
with Jeff Sullivan (later of the Flaming Hands)on guitar
and Steve Harris on keyboards.
Peppers vocals and the sixties girl-group nature of the lyrics
made an instant comparison to Blondie inevitable,
but Harris electric piano sound was substantially different from
Blondie's approach.
This Cd is a long-awaited collection of material both from the
Passengers and solo Angie Pepper tracks which were written
and produced by(and featured the guitar of) her husband,
Radio Birdman's Deniz Tek
Frozen World was a minor hit in Sydney upon its original release
n the mid-80s, as was Girlfriend's Boyfriend.
Also featured is the gorgeous track It's Just That I Miss You,
later recorded by the Flaming Hands and a version of The Visitors
Miss You Too Much.

Track Listing:

1. Frozen World
2. Miss You Too Much
3. Last Chance
4. Why Tell Me?
5. It's Not Easy
6. It's Just That I Miss You
7. Blind Night Out
8. Only One Way Out

Thanks for this post! Though, it would be pretty helpful if you can re-upload the album again, since almost all of them are either taken off or weren't active for ages! But again, thanks for this!
