I had made several insignificant attempts to win the Beyond The River compilation in the past mainly because it featured the Shrinking Men who released one striking low-fi single. The comp showcased several other bands from around the Reading area circa 1980 and the majority contributed solid efforts. I was particularly fond of the Stills meander through a Cure-like landscape. Superior though were the A.1.Vegetables and Dig Dig Dig, both atrocious names which belied their talents. And I secured this item for an extremely reasonable price considering it had always managed to scramble over the £30 mark in the past.
