Gleaming Spires

About Gleaming Spires

Synth pop mavens the Gleaming Spires earned a cult following for their canny blend of dance-friendly electronic pop tunes and venomously witty lyrics on tunes like "Things I Have Done to Our Love," "How to Get Girls Through Hypnotism," and "A Christian Girl's Problem." Led by songwriters Leslie Bohem and David Kendrick, the group's balance of production polish and mordant wit earned them an underground hit with "Are You Ready for the Sex Girls?," a track from 1981's Songs of the Spires that became an alternative radio hit. While it would remain their best known tune, the Gleaming Spires would go on to make two more albums (1983's Walk On Well Lighted Streets and 1985's Welcoming a New Ice Age) that cemented their reputation as outstanding new wave pranksters.
