Around 1984 it seemed that the original goth/posi-punk sound died. Most bands split up, The Cult went 70's rock (even on their first album 'Dreamtime' the tribal drumming was gone), The Sisters resurrected but never managed to get the same level as their previous works.
Around the same time, some new members took over the sound: Altered States, Nosferatu, Stiff Kittens, Restoration, Sins Of The Flesh and the well-known Fields Of The Nephilim.
Nottingham's Every New Dead Ghost was also one of those bands and one of the most interesting. More rock than ethereal, more punk than dark.
'Visions' is the band's very first output, released by themselves. Strong song material but the recording quality is a letdown unfortunately. Pressing 6 mins. on each side on a 45 RPM 7" is asking for trouble I guess. Would've sound better on a 12" or 33 RPM 7". As it was self-released, I think the band was on a tight budget, with no label behind them.
Every New Dead Ghost released the 'Ascension' 12"s and 3 albums before they split in 1992.
There's a retrospective CD available on Strobelight Records.
