about

The historic first recordings that we ever made in a studio.
Resurrected from the only cassette tape we still had of them
Two demos from April and July 1981 and the only studio recordings of that early line up with our drummer.
The songs were soon discarded from the set as we went through our metamorphosis into a more electronic sound.

Martin: Vocals and Bass guitar
Julia: Vocals and Bass guitar
Ashley: Synthesiser
Robbo: Drums

and a long forgotten special guest on guitar...
