A great collection,
This review is from: Discriminate (Audio CD)
33 tracks from one of the most interesting and underrated British bands of the last 20+ years. Tracks range from 1982's Joy Division-ish 'Till The Living Flesh Is Burned', on to the mid 80's keyboard led 'Torture By Roses' through to the lush arrangements of their 90's work ('Leopard Flowers', 'Luther's Army' etc). Douglas Pearce is a wonderful songwriter and has been completely ignored by the British music press - it's a disgrace really, as the man has more talent in his little finger than most of the over-hyped rubbish, that get the plaudits, could ever muster. This is a great place to start your Death In June collection, as it covers their whole career (up to the late 90's) - but even if you have most of the tracks, but it anyway and listen, amazed at the genius of Douglas Pearce!

It gets on my nerves the way he pads out all his albums with doodles and sketches.
