Dislocation Dance

Dislocation Dance were a post-punk band from Manchester, England. The group's original line-up is obscure; their first EP, a self-titled 7" as a co-release between two labels, Delicate Issues and New Hormones recorded in May 1980, lists its line-up as 'B' on vocals and keyboard; 'Dick' on drums; 'Ian' on vocals and guitar, and 'Paul' on bass, but also mentions 'Past members of the band' as Rod Bloor, Kathryn Way, Tim Glasser, Ian Rogers (drummer, who subsequently joined Blue Orchids ) and Julie Gask. The group had formed in 1978 and included Ian Runacres (vocals, guitar), Andy Diagram (trumpet, vocals, also of The Diagram Brothers), Paul Emmerson (bass), and Dick Harrison (drums). The Slip That Disc 12" EP featured a much more confident and tight sound, as well as a cover of The Beatles' "We Can Work It Out". Both this release and the group's debut album Music Music Music (1981) featured the Runacres, Diagram, Emmerson and Harrison line-up. In 1982, Diagram left to join The Pale Fountains, the band also signing to Rough Trade. 1984's Midnight Shift album saw Kathryn Way rejoin as vocalist and a more jazzy pop sound, with Herbie Ryan joining on saxophone. A final EP, "What's Going On", saw the return of Diagram, and the replacement of Way by Sonja Clegg. The band called it a day in 1986, with Clegg going solo, releasing an album in 1987, and Diagram rejoining The Pale Fountains.
