Boys From The Blackwood - Spiral Scratch, July 1991
SS: What was your feeling on getting your first record out?
MSP: Motown was our first proper release. It was after Suicide Alley which was what we did together off our first couple of shows in London. We just did it more as a demo really, we did 300 copies and we didn't sell them, we just pushed them all off, like to anybody we could think of. 300 singles and we just gave them all away. Collector's items, they'll be.
SS: That's it, exactly! Everybody else does it. Everybody else puts one out, like 200 copies white label etc.
MSP: It was funny with Suicide Alley because it seemed like a record but we never had any copies ourselves! Kept them under the bed for three months!
SS: Because even that at the moment is becoming quite collectable. People just can't get hold of it.
MSP: Every time we pressed in a sleeve, we always did a different colour. So the first 500 are even more decorative, one's yellow, then there's blue and then there's a pink one. (more...)
