ELECTRO HIPPIES need no introduction to anyone familiar with UKHC in the mid to late '80s. Now, for the first time, their recordings that predate their records for Peaceville are collected together officially, including their solitary Peel Session, split LP tracks, their two studio demos and many live and rehearsal tracks previously unheard outside of the band. Released in conjunction with the band, and including liner notes by Simon, as well as lyrics, photos, posters and more, this is a must own collection for any fan of 80s UKHC.
