Foreign Press - The Great Divide 12", 1983

Foreign Press - The Great Divide 12", 1983

Ha! I finally got the scanner to do what I wanted it to do with this sleeve. You can tell it's kindof a dense sleeve and I guess it threw the computer off for awhile. Anyway, this is the same band I posted two records of before that came from Manchester. One thing I neglected to mention before is their first single "Downpour" from '79 was produced by New Order manager Rob Gretton. I didn't feel like posting it here, though, because I don't have the actual record and I think it's kinda boring. But you can hear it on their myspace page. Anyway, this 12" I've posted here is the one that was produced by members of New Order (see at the bottom of the back sleeve it says "A Dojo Be Music Production"). Why this didn't end up on the LTM records "Cool As Ice" compilation of stuff produced by Be Music, I don't know. Rights, perhaps?

Perhaps needless to say, this is yet more fun, danceable New Wave. I love it.

maybe because part of the production is by "dojo" ie donald johnson, drummer from ACR?

Yes...I suppose that're right. Whoever you are, I'm happy you landed at my blog. Can I make you a cup of tea?
