Southern Studios July 1981 to February 1982

CD2
WELL FORKED - BUT NOT DEAD
Compiled at Southern Studios throughout the recording of Christ - the main body is a 4-track recordig made on 9th June 1981 by the Real Time Music at the 100 Club, London. Voice-over on the track 1 is by Mitch of the now defunct Radio Caroline. One Hand is adapted from a traditional Zen tale. Track 9 which includes Heart-throb Of The Mortuary and track 19 I Can't Stand It were our first efforts in a studio, whose name none of us can remember, recorded in the summer of 1977. Heart-throb was later played on a pirate radio station (whose name we also can't remember) and it was from this broadcast that the track is taken. Heart-throb and I Can't Stand It include Steve Hermann who, before being replaced by Phil Free, was our lead guitarist. Track 18 includes a cassette recording of the band live at Action Space in Central London on November 16, 1977.

This re-issue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and includes additional out-takes and a second disc featuring the live recording of their June 1981 gig at the 100 Club in London along with other studio tracks, demos, radio broadcasts and cassette recordings.

Packaged in a slip-case, with a perfect-bound booklet containing extensive liner notes from band members Steve Ignorant and Penny Rimbaud, lyrics and artwork painstakingly chosen and put together by Gee Vaucher, plus a CD-sized recreation of the original poster, this release is beautifully presented.
