There was a period of time in the synth-happy early 80s when every week brought some strange and wonderful piece of vinyl into your favourite indie record shop. One such discovery for me was Ledernacken’s “Amok.” And I won’t lie. The only reason I picked it up was because of the Star Trek episode “Amok Time”—you know the one where Spock gets all horned up for the pon farr and is forced to fight Kirk over T’Pring at the behest of the bitchy T’Pau and… Never mind. I digress. “Amok” was Ledernacken’s first (and really only) alt-rock dance club hit.
