Overview

Release Date:12/02/2016;Notes:Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing of this 1981 album by the Scottish new wave band including bonus seven inch red vinyl single of the Steve Severin produced single 'Dead Pop Stars' and it's accompanying b-side 'Sentimental'. Radio 1's John Peel was a huge fan, he was the barometer of taste at the time and to many youngsters growing up, what John Peel played mattered. His support for the band led to a recording deal with Epic. With Clare Grogan on vocals, Gerard McInutly and Tony McDaid on guitars, Michael Anderson on drums and John McElhone on bass guitar the band had little success with their first two singles 'Dead Pop Stars' and 'A Days Wait'. Much to do with timing as anything as 'Dead Pop Stars' as song sung from the point of view of a has-been pop star, the single was released shortly after John Lennon's death so gained little media attention. After the first two John Peel Sessions, Gerard McInulty left the band and John McKinven joined and undeterred they recorded most of the album, produced by Steve Severin. Martin Rushent was brought in to produce the title track 'Happy Birthday' due to be the next single. Rushent had worked with Buzzcocks, Stranglers and Generation X and had just finished the Human League album Dare which proved to catapult the Human League into the stratosphere. 'Happy Birthday' was a huge hit, charting #2 for three weeks in the UK charts in October 1981 and earned the band the NME 'Best New Group' and Smash Hits 'Best Newcomer Award' that year.;Track List:1.
