Pure Pop Records

Dead Can Danceís second album, Spleen And Ideal (1985), saw them experiment more with instrumentation, abandoning guitars in favour of cello, trombone and timpani. Widely acclaimed, there was now a richness of unification between voice and music, lyrics and structure, showing they had a concrete sense of the aural ideal they were striving towards. Itís title was taken from Spleen et Idťal, a collection of poems by 18th century French poet Charles Baudelaire. The 2016 LP version is a repress of the original release.
