This is brilliant. I've the black vinyl copy. Hard Life sounds at times like Slam's Positive Education with a hard progressive drum rhythm whilst Lushlife is full of a dark, ominous series of builds and drops which lead into a massive almost orchestral synth breakdown. A great underground two hander with tech undertones, eventually re-released on Multiply in the UK.

To be honest on listening to it again, Hard Life is straight up techno for the first four and a half minutes moving into a big emotional breakdown. It ends on Detroit-esque strings and a rough driving rhythm.
