Released 21/07/08. Following the widely welcomed re – release of the Photos self – titled Top 5 debut album last year, Cherry Red are delighted to have secured the rights to the band’sfollow – up LP, produced by the legendary Tony Visconti, which was shelved before release by CBS in the early 80s.
Formed in Evesham from the ashes of cult punk act Satan’s Rats, the Photos were often touted as the UK’s answer to Blondie. But there was much more to the Photos than that, with fiery, Buzzcocks – like guitars coiling round Wendy Wu’s distinctive vocals.
The bonus tracks serve as a compliment to our earlier reissue of The Photos by completing the band’s entire discography, including a clutch of single tracks that have never before appeared on CD, as well as two unheard cuts. The artwork has been expanded to include new liner notes written in collaboration with guitarist Steve Eagles, featuring accompanying interviews with other members of the band as well as photos and memorabilia. The CD has been re – mastered from the original master tapes, and will be warmly welcomed as one of the great lost albums of the early 80s finally sees the light of day.
Mojo Magazine awarded a very respectable 3 stars to this CD.
