Beyond The Pale (Expanded Edition) - Passion Puppets

Beyond The Pale (Expanded Edition)
PASSION PUPPETS were a synth/guitar pop band signed to the legendary Stiff Records, whose only album BEYOND THE PALE was issued in 1984.

In 1983, the London band scored a memorable radio hit with their Spaghetti Western-influenced single ‘Like Dust’, which was popular both in the UK and in Canada.

This is the first time that BEYOND THE PALE has been on CD in the UK (it was only previously available as an expensive import). 

The album is remastered from the original tapes with eight bonus tracks, including singles ‘Like Dust’, ‘Voices’ and ‘Beyond The Pale’, many of them debuting on CD.

Original members of PASSION PUPPETS are helping out with this long-overdue reissue, contributing rare photos and pictures for the booklet as well as being involved with the sleeve-notes.

Musically, PASSION PUPPETS fell somewhere between Haircut 100 and early Duran Duran.
