Altar Ego - Big Picture 12", 1987 (1982?)

Altar Ego - Big Picture 12", 1987

For more info on this band, see my previous post of the 7" of this. Notice the 12" has a similarly strange sleeve. Why a band would release a 7" in England and a 12" in Australia with an entirely different sleeve I don't know. This record does say 1987 on it, but this really only adds to the mystery. As for the songs on this that are not available on the 7", they are synth-less and pretty cool. I don't believe this band really knew what sound they were going for. It's pretty hard to describe them in a handy, catch-all sentence.
