Something I have and treasure, yes I own a US 12″ !! From 1982 and bit of a mini album for the US market on the tiny PVC Records.
“Flaming Desire” in its long form goes off into an E-bow guitar jam. Love that 808 drum machine with the vibra-slap
“Flesh” seems like it was recorded around his Big Noise ’79 era. Post Punk with Ian Nelson on saxophone and a killer riff.
“The Passion” reveals a bit more guitar on this instrumental, a grandiose almost Western-Film soundtrack. With Count Wiczling on drums and a Love That Whirls bass line.
The “Burning Question” has marimba and 808 and sounds a bit like Japan.
The album track “He And Sleep were Brothers” stars Mark Radcliffe’s drumming (not sure if it’s the radio DJ but it would be fun to think of it) as the main feature along with backward loops and Ian’s saxophone. An hypnotic dreamscape.
“Haunting In My Head” seems a bit of a long lost cousin of “October Man” which seemed to be leftover from the LP “Quit Dreaming and Get On The Beam” – good bass from Nelson too.
And offered in FLAC for the Bill Nelson obsessives (Like GQ)
