Ides Of March - In Winter's Land 7" / On The Face 12"
Here's another collection of one of those 'promising' wave bands from the UK. Don't know where they exactly came from but both records were released on Swindon's RS Records.
My copy of the 12" came with some promo stuff. Melody Maker describes them as The Cure meets The Cult. Sounds writes: '...a cracking rock band in the rugged tense mode of Killing joke and New Model Army'.
On the 'In Winter's Land' 7" you can hear the band looking for their own sound, while the 'On The Face' 12" is way better due to a better , fuller production.
Although the 7" was released first it carries the RSA 3 number, while the 12" carries the RSAT 2 cat. number.
