McCartney II (Bonus Tracks)

McCartney II by Paul McCartney
Released: May 1980
In 1980, Paul was paroled from a Japanese prison, sacked Wings, bought a bank of synths and self-recorded this, one of the weirdest, most eccentric hit albums of all time. It seems like the always sonically experimental Paul was getting into Kraftwerk and synth pop, coming out with bizarre numbers like "Frozen Jap" "Temporary Secretary" and "Front Parlour" to feed his drug-bust bad vibes into. If you're looking for actual songs, "Waterfall" and "One of These Days" are lovely odes to Paul's increasing isolation, while "Coming Up" is an unstoppable disco-rocker (a juiced up concert version was released as a single and returned Macca to the top spot on the singles charts).
