5 Against The House is not exactly what I would call a stereotypical new-wave album, as the band also experimented with a few other influences. A few songs reveal a kind of dark-funky touch, which might remind you of some legendary Belgian 80s formations like Lavvi Ebbel and Alles Allez. + + : This album is an interesting item to enlarge your 80s new-wave collection. This band definitely belongs to the endless list of bands, which never became the most successful in their genre although revealing great songs. I like this good-old 80s spirit, which is runs throughout the entire album. Conclusion: The Tempest can be seen as a new 80s ghost that has been reactivated to haunt the darkest dance floors. It’s an interesting formation, which clearly deserves a re-release of their single album in history. Best songs: ABC – Extended, Eat The Wall, Better And Better, Montezuma.

5 Against The House by The Tempest. In keeping with their elemental name, Northampton post-punk quintet The Tempest struggled through a brief, but mercurial existence. The Tempest - 5 Against The House. Forming early in 1983, their line-up included vocalist Alex Novak (Attrition; Venus Fly Trap) and future Spacemen 3/ Spiritualized guitarist Mark Refoy. They gigged heavily, sharing stages with acts as disparate as Strawberry Switchblade and Alien Sex Fiend, while Lady Left This, their debut 7 for Dave Barker’s Glass imprint, enjoyed heavy rotation with BBC Radio 1 stalwarts John Peel and David Jensen.
Over the bridge Under the waterfall Cover the path as you go Over the bridge All I could do was crawl Colours that fade Memories fade as you go I was afraid It was too late The web has been spun It's time to move on Now is the time to believe You've the heart of a sabatour What do you. take me for? Roll the dice i've no desire left for No art in the way you play out your hand Your game I'll call your bluff instead of your name I was afraid Foundations were laid The pain is too numb The harm has been done Now it's my turn to leave Over again I tried.
