Some serious talent went into 1982’s Station M.X.J.Y., the sole LP from Bristolian no-wavers Maximum Joy - three of the group were also members of the legendary Glaxo Babies, guitarist John Waddington had just finished a stint in The Pop Group, and Station M.X.J.Y. was produced by a crack-team of Adrian Sherwood, Dave Hunt and Pete Wooliscroft. It's no wonder, then, that this album remains such a prized post-punk nugget almost four decades on from its first release. Oscillating between dubbed-out grooves and visceral rhythmic punk, Station M.X.J.Y. can go toe-to-toe with contemporaneous records from The Slits, Orange Juice, A Certain Ratio and ESG. We have 1972 Records to thank for the reissue.
