Editor's note: the posting of this record is more a testimonial to good music that has slipped through the cracks than a rare or obscure find. That said, these guys aren't exactly a household name unless your family has a few goth kids in it. Even then they might look a little cock-eyed at you wondering what you're going on about with this oddly named outfit. Well, they were one of my favorite bands from the 80s and still are. Though this isn't my favorite album it is their first and most experiemntal one. Hence, it gladly fits the bill as one of those lost records by a fairly unknown band. They are a great band just the same. I'm sure that I'll be visited by somebody demanding that I take this one down and I gladly will when asked. Until then...enjoy and seek out more by these guys. Just note that the band has split into factions which both carry the namesake. Yep, it's a strange little world we live in folks.
