Info

The Fine Art of Surfacing was The Boomtown Rats' third album and contained the hit-single releases, I Don't Like Mondays, Diamond Smiles and Someone's Looking at You. The album peaked at No. 7 in the UK Albums Chart in 1979. I Don't Like Mondays bw It's All the Rage was released in July 1979 and reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart in late July in the UK in the same year. The song refers to Brenda Ann Spencer's killing spree on Monday, 29 January 1979 in San Diego, California. Chock-full of new wave charisma and tamed by Bob Geldof's upfront wit, The Fine Art of Surfacing is novel in both its lyrical flair and modern pounce. Made famous by the colorful history of I Don't Like Mondays, a true story about a 16-year-old girl who shot 11 people without showing any remorse, The Fine Art of Surfacing switches gears from this song's well-crafted harshness to the hectic pace of tracks such as Nice N' Neat and Sleep, among others.

This album brings back memories of driving around in my friend's Cutlass Supreme in 79'.

It is probably Bob Geldof's shining moment in the sun musically. We all know what he went on to do on the humanitarian front. 'I Don't Like Mondays' (the hit on the record) is hardly the high point of this tightly written 80's alterno-pop affair. The ascerbic wit of 'Diamond Smiles' and the eeriness of 'Wind Chill Factor Minus Zero' and the paranoia of 'Someone's Looking At You' stand out in this post-punk celebration of the good, the bad and the frightening.

Though the music sounds dated the arrangements and creativity display the musical talents of The Rats and producers Phil Wainman and Robert John Lange. Apparently the Fine Art Of Surfacing is a reference to masturbation... but don't be fooled this is not some arty self-indulgence but more clearly is an astutely crafted pop gem.
