About this item
Whilst the release of 1989's ‘Self-Non-Self’ EP represented an introduction to the band for many (John Peel among them) Cranes had quietly made their debut with the release of the ‘Fuse’ cassette in 1986 on local Portsmouth label Bite Back!
Infamous among hardcore fans, the recordings have been largely unavailable since release (‘Fuse’ made an appearance as a bonus track in later years) with the original tape changing hands on-line at a premium.
Remastered at Abbey Road and with the addition of the previously unreleased ‘New Liberty’ (a song originally slated for inclusion on ‘Self-Non-Self’) this release will be the first time the music has been widely available since its initial release.
‘Fuse’ is the 2nd release from the band’s archive following the recent release of their ‘BBC Peel Sessions’ and prefaces the promise of new music to come.
