Four CD set containing the original albums New Clear Days and Magnets plus b-sides and single edits plus two CDs of previously unreleased demos, rough mixes, alternative and live versions featuring their performance from The Rainbow on 3rd December 1979. Includes three songs - 'Move', 'Secret Noise' and 'Caroline' - that have never officially previously been released. With a fully illustrated 24-page booklet containing rare and previously unseen photos with a new annotation by Ed Piller. Formed in 1978 and "discovered" by The Jam's Bruce Foxton and managed by Paul Weller's Dad John they signed to United Artists in 1979, their second single 'Turning Japanese' becoming an enormous international hit reaching #3 in the UK and #1 in Australia. It was also a major hit in New Zealand, Canada and reached #36 in the US single charts. Their debut LP New Clear Days was released in 1979 and their second album Magnets in early 1981. The band never repeated the same degree of commercial success as 'Turning Japanese' but developed a global following prior to their split in the early '80s.
