Just wanted to say "great site!" - one of the greatest bands of all time (up there with The Stooges, Can, Halo Of Flies, Outsiders, Albert Ayler's "Greenwich Village" group... I could go on). Anyways, here's some anal-retentive discography additions for you, some I own, some have unfortunately passed through my hands, but I guarantee they all existed at one time or another: For How Much Longer CD (Rough Trade TDCN-5153/JAPAN) briefly released in 1994, straight reissue of LP For How Much Longer LP (Rough Trade RTL-1/JAPAN) Don't own this version so no details. This and the 7"s below were released in Japan in 1981 (the 7"s were both released at the same time) We Are Time CD (Rough Trade TDCN-5154/JAPAN) briefly released in 1994, straight reissue of LP We Are Time LP (Rough Trade RTL-17/JAPAN) non-diecut sleeve (labels are printed on cover), inludes a lyric sheet (yeah!) plus a sheet of Rough Trade artist postcards. Released in 1982 We Are All Prostitutes 7" (Rough Trade RT-2/JAPAN) don't own this Where There's A Will 7" (Rough Trade RT-5/JAPAN) don't own this V/A - Requiem By Rough Trade CD (Rough Trade/Japan Record/Tokuma 35JC-104/JAPAN) excellent label comp released in 1984. Includes "Justice". Also includes a Raincoats track ("Dreaming In The Past") that didn't appear on the Geffen reissues and I can't find anywhere else - great folk/psych track! V/A - Clear Cut Finale CD (don't know label/catalog info but it was a Japanese CD, the title above may not be 100% correct - I saw it in a store back in the late 80's but didn't purchase) Another Japanese Rough Trade label comp, this one focusing on slightly later stuff but included "We Are All Prostitutes" Y LP (Radarscope/Warner-Pioneer P-10705F/JAPAN) both of my copies only include 2 inserts (a lyric sheet in English and a lyric/liner notes sheet in Japanese) so I doubt that a poster was ever printed for the Japanese market. Red obi has advertisements on back for 2 Elvis Costello LP's, Nick Lowe's "Jesus Of Cool", and a Bram Tchaikovsky LP. Released in 1979 She Is Beyond Good And Evil/3:38 45rpm 12" (Radarscope ADA 29(T)/UK) same tracks and lengths as 7", but much improved sound, obviously. I don't know if some people new to the band realize it or not, but their stuff was NEVER easy to find (I was looking for the stuff as far back as '86). Great LP's by the Fall, Birthday Party etc. virtually littered the bins in comparison. Anyways, keep up the good fight and I hope these additions are assets to the cause. Talk to you later! All the best, Jade Hubertz P.S., I own a CD reissue mail-order business. Both of the Radar/UK CD's are always in stock. Unfortunately, they're not cheap ($26.75 each) - a fate common to all full-price (i.e., non-budget-line) CD's from over there.
