Everest The Hard Way - Tightrope 12"
Another contribution by Burl Veneer.
This is the sole release of new wave band Everest The Hard Way. Also released as a 7", but here you get the 12" with an extended version of the title track and 2 extra tracks. Think early Simple Minds, Music For Pleasure,... Could have been better known if they continued but are now completely forgotten.
This 12" was issued on Do It Records, run by Robin Scott of M (with the hitsong 'Pop Muzik'). Other bands on Do It were Adam & The Ants, early Yello, Snakefinger and even Renaldo & The Loaf. First 7" 'Moderne Man' of M also released on Do It.
