This is the first release. There`s been a lot of talk about them on the
cardiacs list. It was definitly them on the session recently.
And just to add to your list of Darkstar bands. There was a NWOHM band of
that name circa 1980-2 who released at least one album. The most known track
was called `lady of mars` and to make it even weirder, I always thought the
track always sounded much better when played at 45rpm instead of 33.
