Pel Mel: the early singles are still great stuff, possibly some of their best songs and, probably, the most connected to UK post-punk in this bunch. The LP and 12" single are all fine enough but the tunes aren't there for me.

The Moral Fibro tracks are all that they ever recorded (whilst on APP Archives #4 only 2 of these tracks appear). The cassette quality here is excellent too. "Over The Sea" is a Patrick song which, I think, re-appears later in Famous. "Coming Attraction" has Cathy Hopkins on vocals which prompted me to remember that, yes, all 3 of the singers performed live. A bit like a co-op, really.

The Prod 7" EP is lovely stuff, much different to the demo/experimental tracks on APP Archives #4 and sounds more like 90's post-rock than anything else.
