about

The Attrition of Reason
was our first album proper.
Originally released on vinyl by
Third Mind Records in 1984.

After rediscovering the original 4 track tapes 10 years ago and remastering the song "Beast of Burden" for the 2006 ATTRITION best of collection i knew i had to remaster the rest of the album... along the way i discovered demos and alternate takes of some of the songs.
I was also pleased to be in contact with the original cover photographer and find full colour photographs from that 1984 session.
The 2 CD set also includes a selection of hard to find bonus tracks from the many cassette and vinyl compilations we contributed to over 1982 - 84.
So here it is... after a rather long wait...

The attrition of reason - redux
