1 copy found its way onto the juke box at The Newcastle Arms, the band and mates local much to the annoyance of the older clientele as it was on repeat while the lads were in. Another found it's way to John Peel who played the disc 3 times that the band know of. Around 25 were distributed / given to the band and friends by the member who paid for them. I don't want to spoil the story coming up in a book shortly but I understand the same lad in a depressed state left a legacy. The band also recorded a number of demo's of outstanding quality which no doubt will see the light.
