All ten songs on The Affectionate Punch are nearly swollen with ambition and swagger, yet those attributes are confronted with high levels of anxiety and confusion, the sound of prowess and hormones converging head-on. It's not always pretty, but it's unflaggingly sensational, even when it slows down. Having debuted with a brazen reduction of David Bowie's "Boys Keep Swinging" to a spindly rumble, t Alan Rankine and vocalist Billy Mackenzie ensured instant attention and set forward with this, their first album.
The Affectionate Punch was released on 1 August 1980. Michael Dempsey and John Murphy featured in promotional shots and the accompanying tour but did not perform on the record. Alan Rankine recalls that the whole album was recorded with only himself, Billy and a session drummer: "it was great fun. We just never stopped and the ideas just came and came and came. The Affectionate Punch" and "A" were released as singles to little commercial success
