This was Simon Boswell’s first and only solo album before forming the band ‘Advertising’, who went on to support Blondie on tour. The surprise is the avante garde nature of the music. There is a great blend of acoustic and electric guitars on the title track ‘The Mind Parasites’ with Simon playing all instruments, including a Stranglers type bass line before the Stranglers had recorded anything. All in all, this is a rare album that is another forgotten gem. Also worth mentioning is that the artwork of Peter Brookes on the cover is excellent. Great album.
