Alice Cooper releases Flush the Fashion
Flush the Fashion is an album by Alice Cooper, released in 1980.
Musically the album was a drastic change of style for Alice Cooper, leaning towards a new wave influence. Though the lead single "Clones (We're All)" only touched the Billboard Top 40, the album was Cooper's most successful album in 3 years and is widely considered by fans as a hidden gem in his musical catalogue.
This record was produced by Roy Thomas Baker.
The album's ten tracks touch on themes such as the loss of identity, taking on other roles, and the usual Alice Cooper-esque dementia. This is evident even in the lyrics of Flush the Fashion's cover songs (for example the "Clones" single). Cooper also performs several "story" songs, presenting a series of intriguing vignettes in lieu of more traditional subject matter.
