Josef K - Heaven Sent


Josef K
Heaven Sent (12" ep)
Supreme International Editions
Edition 87-7

Bit of a rarity this one I suppose. I've no idea how many copies of this release were ever pressed or sold. Features one track 'Heaven Sent', from a John Peel Session recorded in 1981; a demo version of 'Radio Drill Time' as well as two tracks from
Josef K's then unreleased 'Sorry For Laughing' album which should have been issued by Postcard way back in 1980. 

Supreme International Editions was a label which was run by former Josef K manager, Alan Cambell -who also handled Paul Haig's solo career for a couple of years in the 80s. The label also released the band's 'Young & Stupid' album. Frankly, I don't know much about this label or any of the other stuff released on it. A quick search on the web didn't bring up much information I'm afraid. It's also a bit sad that official sites like josef k.net haven't been updated in a long time. Anyhow, if you want to know what Paul Haig's up to nowadays you can check out his Twitter account.

Nice site! I've got the Supreme International Editions EP and LP. Let me know if you'd like a (slightly crackly) mp3 rip of them.

Thanks, but no thanks.
