Merely uploading this one for a few friends who inquired at the Wierd party last night, when none other than the inimitable Sean McBride (aka Martial Canterel) dropped it during his set. Here we have the seminal Kissing the Pink track “The Last Film,” a haunting military-driven tune that cracked the top 20 during the band’s earlier years. It appears here in club form, and I believe this version, while stellar, has not been featured around these parts.

The single can still be had for an affordable price- in fact I’ve seen a handful of copies kicking around NYC for any interested and local parties!

As an added bonus, I’ve also uploaded the Watching Their Eyes 12”, my personal favorite track of the band’s, which features an alternate club mix and an exclusive longer mix of the b-side. Here’s the contents:

In case you missed it, the link for Naked should still be up and running from way back in the archives. Don’t hesitate to check out one of the most innovative new wave records this side of the commercial spectrum! Stay tuned for more goodies next week, as I’ve got a bunch of ripping to attend to this weekend.
