• The band’s second and final album is Disc 2 and features the single ‘The Real Me’ and a re-working of the seminal ‘No Russians In Russia’.

• The third disc contains a variety of non LP singles, b-sides and studio out-takes, many of the tracks appearing here on CD for the first time. The previously unreleased ‘Beast Of Ankara’ has also been added as a bonus.

• Three previously unissued sessions for BBC Radio 1’s legendary John Peel show plus an unreleased In Concert for the same radio station are what you will find on Disc 4.

• In depth liner notes by Dave Thompson are a feature of the 24 page booklet which also includes pictures of all the relevant records as well as clippings, adverts, etc…

• Each CD is housed in its own individual cardboard wallet and then packed into a hard back clam shell box. Looks and sounds great!
