Όπως έχουμε ξαναπεί δεν είμαστε καθόλου εναντίον των επανεκδόσεων, ακόμη και πειρατικών, αρκεί να είναι εύκολο κανείς να τις αποκτήσει.

First music post for us, kick-start with a Greek band whose one and only LP is a landmark for the Greek post-punk scene released by the rare-to-find Smash Records of Thessaloniki (also famous for releasing Yell-o-Yell’s last LP). “…Till Night Comes Again” LP has vanished from second-hand shops long time ago, yet sold quite expensively via mailorder/internet. It appears that recently someone has re-released this gem in vinyl format, however without removing the problems of rarity and high-price; the record is sold as expensive as the original. The “pirate” edition is found to be sold more than 50 €. Whoever made this re-release possible aimed for profit alone. We are not against pirate re-releases of great music as long as they are cheap and accessible to those who are interested in buying.
These are the main reasons why we chose to upload this great record. “…Till Night Comes Again” is a record that stands out as a typical-classical example of how post-punk music energy sounded in
As for the record itself now, the music is pure post-punk, the guitar and the drums are powerful, and the vocals are haunting. This is a great debut album; Fear Condition incorporated all their amateurish energy. The lyrics are great too. The songs sparkle with gothic romantic themes, such as beauty, vampires, dementia, rationality, claustrophobia and alienation. The album ends with a Dionysian feast in frenzy rhythms and the masks fall…
Last but not least, we should note about the album cover. It is a photo taken in Staglieno Cemetery in Genova, Italy, a place where Joy Division used for their album artwork as well (Love will tear us apart, Closer).
Enjoy this masterpiece !!!
