For Record Store Day, Medical Records brings you the next installment of their compilation series showcasing the mighty UK label Survival Records. Already having reissued Drinking Electricity and Play, we present a hand-picked selection of the rarest/finest new wave and dance cuts from the early singles from Survival’s catalog. Contained herein includes both sides of the Analysis “Surface Tension” 7” (featuring Martin Lloyd from Oppenheimer Analysis and David Rome from Drinking Electricity) as well as The Limit “Shock Waves” 7”. Other infectious songs include Richard Bone’s “Digital Days” and “Quantum Hop” plus two tracks by Thirteen At Midnight and one track by Eddie & Sunshine. This collection will soon be a staple in your valuable wave vinyl collection. All tracks have been carefully remastered.

Discovered Severed Heads in mid-1980 when I followed Tom Ellard's name from Skinny Puppy's "Assimilate (R-23)". My copies are the CDs with Steven Gilmore's art (who also created classic Skinny Puppy covers - 1987 CFAM the best). The track "Hot With Fleas" has nostalgic value.
If I own the CDs, why buy these again? Simply to support the band... Nicholas de Lioncourt (real surname)
