    One of mine too! Wonderful track by all means! I also love “Ghost Of Love” (I believe it was the next 12″ release). That too is a great number with an excellent 12″ dance remix. Thanks a lot, Paul! (More ripping-trouble saved!!)

    OMG Paul!!! Probably the best 80’s New Wave single!!! Lots of memories on this one. I hope you get a hold of Industry – State Of The Nation (Extended Version). Dying to be remastered by you.

    Hope you are well!

    Hi Gilbert I have been searching for a Near Mint copy of Industry – State Of The Nation for a long time but it keeps eluding me. If anyone knows where I can get a Near Mint copy at a resonable price please let me know.

    I am interested in this pressings:

    An absolute fav of mine!
    I didn’t really discover it until the early 90’s.
    I was hooked & soon tracked the album on CD.
    Thanks Paul!

    Such a new wave classic and i remtmber it charted together with another brilliant new wave single…China Crisis’ Wishful Thinking. Shame that single didn’t carry any remixes.

    Almost a one hit wonder in the uk, But their follow-up barely rippled the charts. Thanks for your rip, Paul, which I think will top those already out in cd compilations.

    Here is another almost one hit wonder and another new wave classic I hope you have and may consider featuring in the future.

    I must have missed this post yesterday. I recently added this 12 inch to my blog, but it was the UK Version and it (disappointingly) didn’t have the Extended Mix, despite stating it on the label. I was able to find the Extended Mix on a HTF CD compilation I had from years ago and added it to my post. Thanks! I’m going to grab a download of yours as well!
