about

Not quite a 'Best Of...' and scarcely a 'Greatest Hits'....

The intention with this release is to bring together all the really old stuff that was never available online or on CD before along with the later singles and a couple of bonus tunes* that haven't seen the light of day 'til now.

You get a listen here and pick at it unpack it if you like as some of the tracks came from down the back of a couch or somewhere and are, to put it graciously, non-merchantable.
