The Curse of Zounds Plus Singles

CD - 1993 - Rugger Bugger Discs, Gap Recordings

CD compilation of all Zounds material.

Getting hold of some of the masters for this was like getting blood out of a stone. It’s remarkable how some sections of the anarcho-record-biz have an unhealthy liking for cash and a tendancy towards the petty. It’s a shame.

On the other hand Geoff Travis at Rough Trade was co-operative, helpful and supportive as ever. He is a rare and lovely person in a business peopled largely by sharks, poseurs and charlatans.

The compilation was put together by the inspirational Sean Forbes.
