The The from September 1983. Produced with Paul Hardiman who did these two specially extended versions. It still has a DIY feel to it with his late brother Andy designing the sleeve. With all the fiddles (by Paul Boyle) and Paul Wickens (on accordian) it seems more like synthfolk. Andy Duncan (Linx) played drums alongside the drum machine.
Zeke Manyika’s (Orange Juice) electronic drums are the stand out sound on the funky “I‘ve Been Waiting For Tomorrow (All Of My Life)” Thomas Leer chips in with a synth solo whilst it all hangs together on Camelle G. Hinds (Central Line) insistant bassline, extended fully to over 7 minutes.
