About this item

Exclusive limited vinyl release. Exhilarating! Dynamic! 1982 music from the Death Throes of Liverpool’s maddest band. 42 minutes of it, and nearly all previously unreleased. Instrumentals, mostly, plus fragile earworms from a very distant time.

Also check out Side 2’s tumbling musical collage taken from the same 1982 recording sessions – this time, however, they are overladen with Cope’s earliest autobiographical attempts. Yes, herein are contained 1989’s Head-On reflections: spoken word delivered over a mysterious and distinctively Teardrop Explodes Post-Punk sound. Clad in appropriately intriguing packaging? U-Betcha! ‘Doesn’t feature Reward-type hits anywhere herein’!!
