    I have this 7″ and the 7″ of ‘World Of Water’. Good stuff.


  8. Paul Colourzone Says:

    The most under rated group of the 80’s Paul…These guys are awesome.
    I don’t know if you have the rest of their stuff, but they have tracks that are unbelievable. Luxury being an understated one as well.
    Thank you for your perfect work.


  9. The Doctor Says:

    Huh. I’d never even heard of these guys…

    Honestly, I think the B-side, “Sad Film”, is better than the A-side on this one. That’s usually a good sign; I’ll have to see if I can dig up anything else from them…
