Featuring a bodged together version of Emotional Blackmail 1 & 2, this was originally recorded as one track then split with a fade-out and fade-in for Brand New Age. There is a definate join in the recording and the repeated guitar riff is not played as many times as the album version.
"We used to use PA company Supermusic from Yorkshire for some of the early tours. Headed by Dave Leaper, Supermusic had put together a hotch potch PA system which was patched together precariously. However, the crew, Dave (sound mixer), Chutch and Martin (back line), were great and very well liked by the band. Chutch in particular with his dry sense of humour, good nature and great one liners, became an integral part in the Subs organization eventually defecting from Supermusic to work for us directly."
