(1980) and belated follow-up, 'Pop-Ish Frenzy' (1986).Including the A and B sides of all six of their singles. Plus five Jimmy Pursey produced demos recorded at Polydor in 1979 including energetic, early versions of singles 'Millions Like Us', 'Frustration' and 'Jimmy' and two Paul Weller produced demos, 'Plane Crash and 'Concrete Mixer', recorded at Polydor in 1981 and intended for Weller's Respond label but unissued. All officially licensed and taken from the master tapes for the first time ever.
