From the outside it looks like the regular 7-inch release of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’.

But when you slide the vinyl out – voilà – no labels!

All very strange.

Here’s the 4-track 12-inch version of debut single ‘Obscurity Knocks’ – a title which perhaps became a self-fulfilling prophecy for TCS.

The inner ring of the A-side is inscribed with the legend ‘Youthenasia’, and the title track is backed with ‘The Best Man’s Fall’, ‘Drunken Chorus’ and ‘Who’s He?’.

‘Circling The Circumference’ 2-track 7-inch UK release.

I like the images on this release although I’m not sure where they were shot.

Update: The images are outtakes from the ‘Only Tongue Can Tell’ video shoot. The front picture is of George McDaid on a diving board in Arran. Thanks to majorfilmgeek for the info.
