It's heavily influenced with Turkey type (for want of a better description) music in a similar vein.
It was a shift from the norm for Murphy.

Then the spotlight hit him at the very apex of the intro...to reveal a bald patch on the back of his napper!
There was much snickering among the crowd and I remember staring blankly at him with pursed lips.
Shame really cos' the night went down hill after that.
Sad and hilarious.

I agree. Actually I like Express, Earth Sun Moon, and their self-titled album almost as much as some Bauhaus albums. Not a fan of their 90s albums though.
