Electric Chairs’ ‘So Many Ways’ is post-punk / funkat its height in 1979 – tough rhythms, avant-garde,addictively hypnotic and hypnotic. Two hard to findbomb tunes.  Superb exact reproduction of this excellent postpunk / funk mini masterpiece by the ElectricChairs, who were Wayne / Jayne County and theElectric Chairs until Wayne / Jayne County, true totheir own song, ‘Fucked Off’. The Electric Chairsincluded in their line-up Henry Padovani, whojoined the group after being chucked out of a newband called The Police (replaced by AndySummers).  However, it’s the production skills of DavidCunningham that sets this apart from most punk /post-punk singles. At the time Cunningham wasworking with a stunning array of avant-gardeartists including This Heat, Michael Nyman, DavidToop and his own ‘experimental pop group’, TheFlying Lizards.
