Even by Eighties standards, Scritti Politti had one of the weirdest pop journeys ever. Green Gartside started out as a U.K. post-punk anarchist. But then he decided to make an even kinkier avant-garde statement by crashing the Top 40 with New Romantic synth-pop hits about feminist theory. Absolute is the definitive Scritti anthology, and the first attempt to tell the whole story on one album, along with two electro-minded new gems. From the art-damaged funk of "Perfect Way" to the poignant ballad "Oh Patti," it sums up Gartside as a uniquely deranged pop mastermind.
