Dead Can Dance are an Australian duo (who have always worked with a backing band) who were part of the 4AD label, a label that in its beginnings had a strong aesthetic component that came from both the covers of 23 Envelope and the music of its bands. A music that, starting from afterpunk, gradually drifted towards what was later called dream pop and which was cultivated by bands from the label itself, such as Lush, as well as others from other labels, such as Cranes.

The band in question, Dead Can Dance, practised in its beginnings, at least until 1986-1987, a mixture of atmospheric post-punk with the wide range of percussion methods that the band used in its albums and live performances. The band maintained, especially in the songs sung by Brendan Perry, during the 80s an important part of songs that connected with the alternative pop of the time, while on the other hand the part dedicated to multicultural folk and music of European medieval origin was growing in their albums. In the early 90s Dead Can Dance were more often played on radio shows that dealt with what was then called New Music, which had more to do with Wim Mertens or Michael Nyman than with, for example, Cocteau Twins. In any case, at Green Slime Shop we are left with their magnificent first albums for the 4AD label and in particular with their first album that took them on tour during 1984 and 1985 in various parts of Europe.
