Alphabet Business Concern ALPH017 / ALPHCD017

Vinyl album and CD, 1991

CD reissue 1995

Originally released through ROUGH TRADE records, who sadly folded just as this was released, resulting in the album being almost impossible to obtain. Later reissued on Alphabet.

Bic Hayes originally recorded the guitar parts. When he was replaced by Jon Poole, much of the guitar was re-recorded, although exactly how much isn't clear.


Tim Smith - Guitar + Vocals + Keyboards / Jim Smith - Bass

Dominic Luckman - Drums / Jon Poole - Guitar
