Second Josef K single released on Postcard in May 1980. Comes in one of the brownish 'cowboy' sleeves that were used for some of the label's releases. This was the band that I really preferred on Postcard and was a bit sad when they called it a day after such a short career. In my opinion, this release far outclasses anything Orange Juice put out on the label but I suppose that anyone who is a fan of the label has their own particular favourite.




A coloured Josef K paper insert was included with this release but my copy had none. I don't know why but as I lived and bought these abroad I imagine that somewhere along the line; from pressing plant to shop, someone decided to steal this highly desirable item.

For more info on Josef K check out this link or this link for a full rundown on the band's history.

For some reason I thought Vic Godard was dead... Glad to see he's still going strong. TV21 ! I'd forgotten all about them.
