Explorers Of The Beat- Demos And Sessions 81-83
February 3rd 2023 will see the release of the awaited compilation of old demos and sessions from the bands personal tape collection. What this collection represents is a young band searching for its own identity. The recordings themselves have been transferred from various old analogue tapes and are of course far from perfect in terms of production and sound quality. The Catford sessions for instance were recorded on a 4-track tape machine in a front room, and while the BBC recordings benefited from a more advanced studio set up, the inevitable decay of analogue tape is unavoidable. But what the recordings do give is an insight into the bands journey towards establishing themselves as an independent force.
