About this item

Originally released on 7” in 1982 on Operation Twilight, this reissue uses the Benoît Hennebert cover art that was used for the Les Disques du Crépuscule 12” release. The songs on this, the band’s debut single are the equal of anything Postcard, Rough Trade and the like were putting out at the time. Prime songwriting dressed up in carefree acoustically-minded pop, what’s not to like?

At the end of 1982 the group signed to Virgin and went on to release the acclaimed albums Paci c Street and From Across the Kitchen Table. Praised as “our greatest songwriter” by NME, Michael Head went on to form Shack in 1987 with brother John.
