about

1987 saw a quickly issued e.p. "Ready for Surrender" which sampled Thatcher and the USSR foreign minister - as a protest against the fake reporting of the visit as being a triumph. The rhythm based tracks continued with the "Rhythm & Blues" cassette which "Grand National" is taken from. The next cassette "Eye Cloud Infancy" began as a 2 x C15 affair, and went through several iterations before it was finalised. A tour de force, 7 of its 9 tracks are included here - it spawned 3 singles, "In the Highest Castles", "Part of Me" and "A Heart Full of Shame", which also had some interesting b-sides. With such riches, the only "outtakes" are two tracks from an unfinished "concept" album. "A Heart full of Shame" was on a four song e.p. "Perfect" with the even poppier "I'm Still a Child in Terms of Your Desires." This great song would end up on the follow up "Discretion" but actually fits better as the last track on the CD.
