"On vinyl for the first time, these lost recordings from my wilderness years of 1989-1996 contain two of my favourite ever solo compositions in ‘Astral Girl’ and ‘Sunken Ships’. For me, the latter’s incendiary guitar, played by a then very young Micheal Mooney (Psychedelic Furs, Julian Cope, Spiritualized) is worth the price of admission alone.” - Paul Simpson 2022

Paul Simpson was a founder member of The Teardrop Explodes, and is best known for his work as frontman of Liverpool post-punk band The Wild Swans. Their single ‘The Revolutionary Spirit’ so typified the genre that Cherry Red Records chose it to name their box-set focussing on the ‘second wave’ of Merseyside music. Alongside a new Wild Swans album, his autobiography ‘Revolutionary Spirit - A Post-Punk Exorcism’ is published in 2023.
