Limited heavyweight vinyl LP repressing. Playing with a Different Sex was the debut studio album by Au Pairs. The album peaked at #33 in Britain and launched the single It's Obvious, which reached #37 on the Club Play Singles charts in America in 1981. Since forming in Birmingham, England, in 1979, The Au Pairs have become known for catchy, dark and politically relevant songs with a biting sense of humor and angry delivery. The band's first album, Playing with a Different Sex, instantly became a post-punk classic after its release in 1981. Playing is a powerful and controversial album, with acerbic takes on gender politics, sexuality, government and torture.
