Flowers For Agatha - 7" & 12"s

Someone asked for some Leeds Independent releases and here are the only ones I have. The best known band on that label is Rose Of Avalanche but here's another brilliant band, unfortunately not so wellknown.
The origins of Flowers For Agatha are already from 1980 when the band was called Bleeding Hearts. Later they changed name and started recording tracks in 1985 for the 'The Thickest Head' 7" and 'The Freedom Curse' 12". Last release is the 'Foolish Young Old And Stupid' 12". The band folded around 1986-1987.
There are demo recordings too so there's plenty of material that could make a reissue on CD as the vinyl is quite hard to find these days.
There's a Flowers For Agatha fanpage on MySpace here.

I have their demos and some other unreleased trax--some great music.

The singles were evasive--thanks for ripping them.

The band may see re-release...word will spread when I know more.
