Having brought a copy of this single at the time it was first release I discovered that it was miss-pressed and neither side appears to be Killing Joke. After all these years I have never been able to establish who the artist is, or whether there are many of these miss-pressings. Has anyone else heard of, or come across, this miss-pressing?

A small number of copies from the original Malicious Damage pressing came with a pre-typed folded form comprising military 'call-up papers' to be filled out and submitted by the purchaser. Near mint copies, in picture sleeve with this insert in undamaged condition command huge prices.

Wardance is probably THE definitive KJ song and has been a consistent highlight, driving energy into their live set through over 25 years. Similarly Pssyche has become their 'My Generation', providing a manic conclusion to their live set, frequently ending with drums and equipment scattered across the stage. This release includes a recording of Wardance very different to that widely known from the debut LP. The drumming is heart stopping in its intensity and contrasts to the cleaner 'studio drum sound' of the LP version - the sparse but awesome use of chinese cymbals on the single only serves to highlight the mania that must have swirled through that session - yep, it's that good!
