Following the highly acclaimed recent release on CTR “Perfect Motion”-Jon Savage's Secret History of Second-Wave Psychedelia 1988-93 (A Lauren Laverne BBC 6Music Compilation Album of the Week) comes a limited vinyl version of another previously very well received compilation on CTR. However, this album is cut from a different musical cloth, rooted firmly in the late Seventies/Early Eighties Manchester Post-Punk scene. [info from label]
