The S-Haters ‎– "Stories As Cold As The Irish Sea" (Outer Himalayan Records ‎– OHR 005) 1982



Dunno about being cold, but the Irish sea is certainly radioactive thanks to the British nuclear reprocessing plant in Cumbria on the site of the world's first nuclear power station at Windscale/sellafield.
A slightly less amateurish follow up to 'Death of a Vampire',with a half decent, and dancable(?), sing-a-long opening number on side B; followed by the obligatory Joy Division experimental tune,as in "I Remember Nothing" or "Auto-suggestion".....but obviously, not as good.
The A-side, could easily be a first album Modern English out-take. Sounding rather like a proto-goth crowd pleaser to these malfunctioning ears.

Tracklist:

A -The Deepest Of Reds
B1- Drift
B2-Industry & Nature
