This classic - Sunday Mirror

We hope you've enjoyed the Nobody's Perfect reissue (still available from Occultation and Bandcamp, and that you agree that it was worth the wait! Over the coming weeks we will be taking a look at some of the reviews that have been published in the music magazines and websites. But first, the newspaper reviews, and this from the Sunday Mirror (spot the mistake in the opening line!).


Re-release

The Distractions

Nobody's Perfect

This classic has been reissued, 20 years on. The post-punk New Wave band were label pals with Joy Division before they were signed to Island Records by Nick Stewart, who also discovered U2. He says: "Tony Wilson of Factory Records suggested I check out another local band who'd just recorded a single called Time Goes By So Slow. I loved it from the moment I heard it."
