The Honkies were active between 1987 and 1993 touring the UK and Europe with their honking brass, wonky beats, and homemade costumes. This line up was the core of the band and was later joined in 1990 by John Edwards on Double Bass.
"How Do We Prevent the Advance of the Desert" was their Second Album and was released in 1989 on a home pressing limited run of vinyl all with screen printed sleeves. Each front cover was different. The back cover with information was screened the same on each.
This is the first time that record has been available on CD or digitally. The CD cover is a copy of just one of the vinyl sleeves.
