NEW MODEL ARMY / B-Sides and Abandoned Tracks (1995)

NMA don’t skimp when it comes to their B-Sides.  They give you real value for money, which is something that a single rarely does.  Quite often the tracks from the flip side are as good as the title track they’re supposed to be supporting; in some cases they’re actually better.  This disc collects together 18 such gems from 1985 to 1993 (the rights to their début are owned by someone else, so there’s nothing from it).  What that produces is a disc that’s as strong and kicks as much ass as any of the 'proper' albums.

Songs of Note: Heroin; Drummy B (Billy McCann Version)
