No SBE's - TLH analysis - fingerprints
"This is a soundboard recording of Inner City Unit's second ever gig. And, even though it is through the mixing desk, the sound is pretty ropey in places - there is quite a bit of hiss in the quiet bits, the bass is rather boomy in places and the mix takes a while to settle down. Oh, and the first track is awful (Vermillion "sings"). But it is a classic - a free gig from under the Westway. If you ever saw ICU in the early eighties, this will take you back there. The gig is frequently shambolic...".
