Both tracks are parts of the outstanding album "Soul Mining" (1983). On this release there is also the famous work "GIANT" which was the greatest success of Matt Johnson and Paul Hardiman. This song has an incredible ingenious arrangement dramaturgy with a very long percussion part for that time in which it was published. Also there are great creative electronic sounds (which I miss today's most techno productions) and hard beats like a hammer beating into a stone.The album tells us about something how difficult it is to become an adult and to ask for answers of our reality to understand the world. That all completes a milestone in music history. This one was so good that they coulnd't repeat the same quality of their debut. Respect.
