Alien Sex Fiend - The Manic Nightmare Of Alien Sex Fiend: The Singles 1983-1985
Radiation Reissues - 'Channeling goth, "positive punk", and industrial, Alien Sex Fiend are experimental pioneers whose output defies easy categorization. Formed at London's goth epicenter, the Batcave, in 1982, the Fiends' early use of loops, synth sheens, and a dub sensibility yielded a deal with Anagram and rapid chart success. This dynamite vinyl compilation on Radiation Records draws from six early singles, including the electrode mix of popular debut "Ignore the Machine", freaky dirge "Lips Can't Go", minimalist stomper "Dead And Buried", the rocking excess of "R.I.P.", intergalactic "E.S.T." and the mutant disco of "I'm Doing Time". A killer set tracking their early evolution, this is absolutely essential listening for all ASF fans.'
