I have just returned from Tokyo (following the Mighty Liverpool FC) and while there was able to locate a copy of the Japanese release of this album. It is a crime that this is not available on general release in the UK or US.
Anyone who has enjoyed any music by Shack should have a copy of this, their first album (released in 1988). Almost every song is good and there are stand-out moments of melancolic beauty that are as good as anything on Waterpistol, HMS Fable or The Magical World of The Strands. Buy this album - it's worth the import price and like everything from Japan, it is beautifully packaged.

An awful lot has been written about this band of brothers - their misfortunes - their influences - their not being appreciated by a wider audience...perhaps too much.
For years, now , the Japanese import version of this body of work has idled on my 'wish-list' but I've never had the light-headiness or extravagance to fork out the best part of 25 quid.
Therefore I was absolutely delighted when it was, affordably, re-released this autumn.
Now, with it's purchase I have, almost, their entire catalogue - and just love each and everyone of their songs and tunes.
This is their first album and bears their yet to be defined/refined hallmarks, the clever understated pop songs that serve their appreciating audience so well.
An absolutely raw album, and by their standards a bit rough and ready - but a rare delight.
What Shack really need to be written about them and their work is their originality - their influence - and how much and how many jangly guitar indie groups owe to them - if some of these bands owned up - spoke up and paid their dues, the Head brothers and Shack would begin to take the ears of the wider audience their timeless back catalogue so richly deserves.
Now, I just can't wait for the next new release. I just can't get enough.

Why do people have this "not as good as later records" opinion about Zilch? I held off buying it because of that apparent consensus. Having said that, I used to believe what they wrote in the NME. More fool me.
It's 1988, and this is as good as anything else that comes out. It's an excellent album, and I wish I'd bought it then.
As a separate issue, John Head has written some superb songs, Miles Away and Carousel being only two, so why do some people not give him the credit he deserves?
You should really own this.

I'm not gonna try to give my opinion as to the production value being very 80's like, or that it's a necessary link between the Pale Fountains of yore and Shack (or The Strands) of today....cos it's all about the music and how it should make you feel.

I have had this album on cassette for decades, and now finally this album is on sale at an affordable price. Michael Head is just a fabulous writer of lyrics and tunes, and this album makes me realise just how lucky I am to have been a young bloke growing up influenced by awesome music like this. Not one DUFF track on this melodic, complete and irresistably written recording.

Just one question... In the passage written by Michael Head in the sleeve, he talks about 'The Pale Foundations'.... is this a typo or is there something I should know??

Anthems to make you smile and feel good about yourself!!!!
