Communal Drop 12" single "Fanatics". Front and back covers + vinyl A & B sides. Ampex multi track and 1/2 inch stereo master mix. Recorded 4/4/'85 at Twilight Sound Studios 57 Alpha Street Salford by Frank Walsh. The single was well received and would be played by John Peel on both Radio 1 and World Service and regularly by Dave Booth at Cloud 9 and Legend and by John Gannon at The Ritz leading to John putting the band on on 23/12/'85. Both DJs would play it back to back with the new released single "So Young" by The Stone Roses. Thanks to Dave and John for having faith and entertaining the masses throughout the years. RIP Dave & John.
