Two CD set. Factory Benelux presents a double disc anthology of singles, radio sessions and live tracks by cult Manchester group Crispy Ambulance, all recorded between 1980 and 1982. Disc 1 is forceful live album Fin, comprising live performances mix-desk recorded around Europe and the UK during the winter of 1981-1982. Most of this material was never recorded in the studio and captures the band at their most powerful and hypnotic. The CD closes with three bonus studio tracks, including both sides of the debut 7" single on Aural Assault Records from 1980, as well as Black Death, the b-side of 1982 single Sexus on Factory Benelux. Disc 2 is archive collection Frozen Blood, which includes both sides of the 10" single released on Factory Records in 1980, all 8 tracks from radio sessions recorded for Piccadilly Radio (July 1980) and John Peel (January 1981), plus 7 more live songs taped in 1982 but never studio recorded at the time. All 32 tracks have been transferred from the original analogue session tapes. 142 minutes of music in total. Cover portrait by Harry Papadopoulos. Updated liner notes by James Nice.
