And the rest?,
This review is from: Daunt Square To Elsewhere: Anthology 1982-88 (Audio CD)
Until their two seminal Rough Trade albums are re-released, fans will have to put up with this compilation of tracks culled mostly from the 'We hate you...' collection and the two later Virgin albums. I would have liked more from the 'Everybody is Fantastic' album, like 'Moon'; and their masterpiece LP 'The Clock comes down the stairs' like 'Goodbye it's 1987'. B-side nuggets like 'Harmony time' and 'Teddy dogs' could also have been slipped in as a nice surprise.
I'm nit-picking here but that's because I, like many others, am annoyed at the lack of back-catalogue of this band who were arguably up there with the Smiths and the Go-Betweens as torch-bearers of alternative 80's pop.
A 4-star collection.
