China Crisis Bottom of the class!!
Great to see Martin Stephenson there I´d forgot about this great single and The The Infected brilliant effort I´d say.

I didn't think anybody else in the world knew of Colenso Parade - "God put my eyes in with smoky fingers" I loved that single. There was a halfway decent version of Here Comes The Night on the b-side if I recall correctly that I enjoyed.

This is a great series - cant wait to see wait pops up in the next one.

I'll always love The The but I think the gem in that week's batch of singles was the classic by The Flatmates.

Wonderful stuff. I used to read the Record Mirror religiously at this time so reading this takes me right back.

Brilliant job putting so many of those singles up for download here too. Keep up the good work!

Foster And Allen get a better review than China Crisis?

Has the world gone mad?

Arizona Sky is one of my favorite singles of the 80's... A travesty!
