Some good news arrived this week, from the wife of my pal who underwent a period in a medically induced coma followed by open heart surgery just a few weeks ago - he's been released from hospital to convalesce at home. He's as weak as a kitten, frightfully pale and drawn, under regular medical supervision and extremely tired........, but he's home. I'm typing this on Sunday evening and will very shortly pour myself a generous post-work glass of red wine, which I will raise in thanks to toast the phenomenal men and women of the NHS.
This Heat forged a uniquely experimental post-punk path for six years from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, releasing an eclectic body of music across two LPs and one EP that appeared to have obvious antecedents. Produced by Flying Lizard David Cunningham, this is the title track of the 'Health and Efficiency EP' from 1980.
