This really should have been written in advance of last week’s piece on The Weather Prophets but I just thought I’d be a bit twisted.

As I mentioned seven days ago, the first two 45s by The Loft had gone down a storm in the music press.  The thing is, I’m bemused as to why a single from September 1984 finds a place an album looking at the class of 86…especially when the band in question had broken up in July 1985.

But mine is not to reason and so as part of the look at the 48 songs on the compilation, here are the two songs that made up the piece of plastic that had the label number Creation 009:-
