hmmm... i know i have their 7-inch lying around here somewhere, but i'm not so sure i have this one. nice and obscure, and a great addition to any postpunk fan's collection.

and for anyone interested... i'll be adding a Neon release very soon! Stay posted.

Fantastic release, thank you very much for uploading this!!
The title track reminds me a lot of bands like The Sound or The Comsat Angels.
keep up the good work, cheers from Belgium!

Isn't the title track one of the greatest postpunk (or goth) tracks of all time? Yes, strongly influenced by Martin Hannett-produced Joy Division, like so many. But who cares. Btw, the producer here, oddly enough, is Kevin Coyne. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Curious Guy for this amazing record!!! For the song Polar Exposure I searched for years!!
I heard it for the first time in the 80's on the radio and taped on a cassette.
I didn't know how it sings till a user of Soulseek told me the Name fom this band. A rarely obscure record and a great blog. Thank you! Paule
