1. Twin Cadillac Valenine - Screaming Blue Messiahs

This was released as SBM's debut single in 1985 and released on their Gun Shy album in 1986.

2. Fatherised- Sudden Sway

Nice alternative electronic dance pop not disimilar to something from the mid-80s Factory stable. Sudden Sway recorded 3 albums and a couple of Peel Sessions before disbanding in the early 90s. This is an exclusive track to this EP.

3. Breakfast (Live At Ronnie Scotts) - The Associates

Featuring the unique vocal talents of the late Billy Mackenzie, this is an exclusive live version of The Associates' Top 50 hit from 1984. The track in its studio form also appeared on the 1985 album 'Perhaps'.

4. Subtle Manoeuvres - Brilliant

Exclusive track not included on Brilliant's 1986 first and only album'Kiss The Lips Of Life', which, like its singles failed to set the charts alight or please the critics. Where did it all go wrong? Brilliant were formed by ex-Killing Joke bassist and future much sought after producer and remixer Youth, and included in their ranks Jimmy Cauty who went on to be one half of the KLF. The other half of the KLF, Bill Drummond, was Brilliant's A&R manager and their manager was former Teardrop Explodes keyboardist Dave Balfe. On top of that, Brilliant were one of the first artists to be produced by Stock, Aitken & Waterman, before their trademark Hit Factory days. Perhaps somewhat ahead of their time, if Brilliant had emerged a couple of years later they could have been massive. Not that it mattered....For SAW and KLF completists, however, this EP is absolutely essential.
