Josef K : Heaven Sent 12" ep (front)

Josef K
Heaven Sent : 12” ep [front cover] 
Supreme International Editions 
Edition 87-7 (1987)

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 Records 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. A wee look at the official Josef K site is worthwhile and has been recently updated. Anyhow, if you want to know what Paul Haig’s up to nowadays you can check out his Twitter or his Paul Haig Music website. He has some exciting new releases on the agenda.
