Of Queues and Cures

Freed from the onus of Alan Gowen‘s jazzier tendencies, Of Queues and Cures (1978) is the tightest thing any of the remaining members of National Health produced this side of the first two Egg records, with newly-added bassist John Greaves‘ “Squarer for Maud” triumphantly outshining his earlier, discombobulated attempts at epic form for Henry Cow on “Half Asleep/Half Awake”.

Side one of this splendid album can be heard here:
