saw me your good side

Charles Bullen formed the duo Friendly Rifles with Charles Hayward,
who later became the legendary art-punk band This Heat.
After this band split in 1982 he made an album under the name
The Lifetones, and later recorded as Circadian Rhythms.

Like other British post-punk contemporaries (Slits, Pop Group)
Bullen immerses himself deep in zoned dub territory on
much of this album
the thick reggae haze with hypnotic and winding lock grooves
are surely the albums finest moments (see “Good Side”)
Art Rock with Dub feeling.
