INXS, The Swing (1984)
I was a massive INXS fan as a young kid. Particularly, I loved the Kick album – but I heard people talking about The Swing – and then realised I knew all the big singles from it. (I think my aunty had the tape). Anyway, I’ve only recently picked up this record – and it was a junkstore find, so the version of Original Sin is ruined by being scratched (a great shame, as that’s a kick-ass song). Now I’ll probably look for another – better – version of this LP. But everything else on here plays just fine enough. And there are other great songs here. But Original Sin is a little bit of magic I reckon. Good band INXS. Well, up to and including Kick. There wasn’t much left in the tank after that.
