When the stock of picture sleeves was exhausted, remaining copies were made available in a 'Hobbies Of Today' company sleeve (see separate entry)

Of the 1000 singles pressed, several hundred were destroyed in the 1990s due to lack of storage space for the band's spare stock.

    Angular, jerky New Wave that sounds as much 2004 as it does 1979 (see CDOASS).

    Both tracks are first class, I guess you could say they qualify as Post Punk but there is definitely an arty aesthetic running here to thanks to synths taking main lead.

    Simply irresistible stuff, highly recommended for anyone in their 40s who loved the arty Indie Rock scene of the mid 00s.
