The follow up to Electric Soup is here at last. The cover is a nod to one of the great electro albums, Gary Numan's 1979 album 'The Pleasure Principle' (red triangle). It features favourite live tracks performed by us over recent years, finally collected together. The songs are 80's influenced but feature contemporary dancebeats and rhythms. The title track write up will explain further on why it's called 1979.

Hope you enjoy!

Track Name: The Last Man on Earth
The Sounds of a Crowd are now just history
And everyone earthbound is a distant memory
Track Name: Comatose in Grey
Busy pubs and drunken dreams seem long ago, just memories
This place has changed and not for the good
I'd change it back, if only I could
Track Name: Run and Hide
See the sun through the haze
The smell of smoke and a blood red blaze
Track Name: The Last Days of Freedom
These are the Last Days of Freedom
You've got to fight for the right, for your freedom.
Track Name: Magnetism
You had Magnetism.... for a while
You had Magnetism..... in your smile
Track Name: Phobia
My electric dreams of sound and light
are only here to serve you right
so look behind you in the shadows
and suburban houses in reflective rows
Track Name: Comfort Zone
Take some peace, rest your weary mind
step out of the world, it's time to unwind
Track Name: 1979
It stayed in my head all through that long school day
Are Friends Electric ? is all we had to say
A man outside smoking a cigarette
And a Tubeway Army marching in my head,.
