The B sides for the fans

One for the fans, the equivalent of a collection of B sides. Some are remakes of old stuff with a brass band, Istanbul is reimagined on a Speak n Spell machine. Marty Bellers Mask is a classic and should have made a real album release!

Running out of ideas?

I'll start by saying this is my favourite band. Surprise surprise I like this album........but........again its an album with 3 maybe 4 really good songs and a couple which, back in the day, would have been b sides. If you are a fan you can't go wrong it's just the same stuff we'd expect and love but I can't imagine giving this to a person who never heard them before and expecting them to (A) like it much or (B) want to hear another album which sadly has been the case with pretty much everything since "The Spine". The reworking of "Istanbul" is very good and my top pick is the (written before her passing) Whitney Houston based "Marty Beller Mask". So there it is - fans can't go wrong, everyone else should buy an earlier album.
