Under Two Flags - Lest We Forget 10" / Masks 12"



UK Goth band who managed to release two records on Beggars Banquet sublabel Situation 2. Both releases have the 7", 10" as well as the 12" format. The 7" version leaves out the extended versions as 'False History' is the extended version of 'Lest We Forget', and 'The Day After Dub' the same for the 'Masks' song.
And that's all I know about Under Two Flags. Any extra info welcome.

The artwork on the "Masks" single is taken from the movie poster for the film. I presume the band did name themselves after the movie, Under Two Flags, a 1936 adventure film about the Foreign Legion.

Hey CG,
I posted the missing song from your 10"

Land of the Rising Guns was the 4th track on the 12"

There is another, fourth (B3) song on 10" version of Masks.
For this one I'm not 100% sure, but Under two flags might got another 7" called Every thing she does.Not on Situation two, though...

I know or used to know Gavin Juniper the lead singer.

He and a couple of the band went off to work with the guys from Bow Wow Wow
