Paranoia - Shattered Glass LP

Thanks to Capa Nostra Syndicate for this album. It's quite hard to find so I'm happy to finally be able to give it a listen.
Yes, Paranoia is a punkband. They were from Stoke-On-Trent. Some songs are straightforward punk, others have a darker sound, crossing over to goth. And female vocals are always a plus.
Prior to this album, there's the Dead Man's Dreams/Man In Black 7". Both songs appear on the album but maybe the songs on the 7" are different versions.
Paranoia also appeared on several Rot Records compilation albums although all tracks are from the album.
Paranoia have a MySpace page. Thanks Oliver for pointing that out. There you can listen to some later unreleased songs which are even more into the goth direction.
Let's hope that this band gets the proper reissue treatment.
