As you can see this is the Pat Gibson archive. I know there's more from each 'band' available out there but this'll do me nicely. 

The Systematics tracks are essential early electro-pop highlighted by great tracks like '245T' and 'Bovine' - they really were a fantastic band. 

I think some of Pat's solo material was released as an M-Squared cassette but I'm not certain. I've made up the names of these for the most part as there wasn't a track list on the cassette I used. 'It Happened On Friday' and 'Surely We Deserved It' are fantastic, droning, melancholy pieces. 

The YYC EP isn't half as good as they were live, as you can see if you compare it  with the later tracks here although 'Waiting Time' is excellent (and has the choir's awful contribution omitted entirely - thank heavens). The last 2 tracks are from the time they supported Souxsie and the Banshees - Pat's comments are priceless, as they always were.
