That’s been two excellent Goth ICAs in recent weeks that I’m sure had the double-hit of bringing back memories as well as introducing a few new bands to some readers.  Here’s another one for you, a combo that I know nothing about other than what is contained in the notes for the 4-disc boxset, Make More Noise! : Women In Independent UK Music 1977-1987, which was released last year by Cherry Red Records.

“Led by Anna Di Stefano and Stefano Curti, Rhythm and Faith were a London based gothic rock group formed from the remnants of a couple of Italian Bands, namely TM Spa and Style Sindrome. Having relocated to London and discovered drummer Rab Fae Beith, Curti and Stefano brought the dark essence of those previous groups to a burgeoning goth scene in the capital, and issued their sole vinyl outing, the ‘Time To Run’ EP pn Future Records in 1983. The band still exists today, having reverted to the Style Sindrome moniker, and still showcases the vocal capabilities of the wonderful Anna Di Stefano.”

And here’s the track made available on the boxset:-

mp3: Rhythm and Faith – Young Too Young Girl

I think it’s rather splendid and would have been a worthy inclusion on either of flimflamfan’s or middle-aged man’s ICA.
