Cry Of The Innocent - Susan's Story 12"
One of those promising bands that went completely into oblivion.
Cry Of The Innocent were from the Birmingham area. My copy has a promo insert with alot of live reviews which are all very positive. They do get compared alot with early U2, but that's something that happened in the UK to some bands like The Chameleons as well (much to the dislike of Mark Burgess). Other state influences of The Stranglers, The Undertones or The Cure.
It's a bit weird that Cry Of The Innocent never released anything on a UK label. Their 1st single 'Still Forever' was released by themselves I guess. Think I only came across 1 copy for sale on the net. This 12" was released on an obscure one-off label in France. Both records are quite rare these days.
So what makes or breaks a promising band? You decide.
