Pete Shelley ‎– Sides Of Pete Shelley (US Promo 12″)

A US Promo to promote his first solo LP and released in ’82. Three strong tracks co-produced with Martin Rushent at Genetic Studios. It advertises “Special Mixes” but as a collector I couldn’t tell the difference on “Homosapian”, maybe on “Yesterday’s Not Here” but it is very subtle with a different percussion and louder guitars. The B-side is quite similar but very different to earlier “I Don’t Know What It Is” where Rushent does a bit of “Love & Dancing” on the mix. (Remember this was Pre-Dare but only just!)


Here is a link to the other 12″‘s of that period with refreshed links;

      1. Think he means sarcastically as Pete Shelley died yesterday (Thanks Winx!! – Surprise – Never Knew) Other than that – Who Knows….! No idea what he passed away from or cause? A buddy of mine got a twitter notification about it that is how he knew.
