Work, The : Live in Japan (Ad Hoc Records)
Label: Ad Hoc Records    
Released in: USA    

"The Work was an influential and highly respected post-punk/art-rock band, comprised of some key members of London's underground music scene. This is the first digital reissue of the long out-of-print album recorded during the bands 1982 tour." (from the overlap card) "By 1982 drummer Rick Wilson had left The Work to study Katakali in India, and bassist Mick Hobbs followed shortly afterwards over disagreements about what the group should be playing. The remainder of the band then asked Amos (bass) and Chris Cutler (drums) to join them for a tour of Japan that had already been scheduled before the breakup. Together with sound engineer Chris Gray, the group flew there in June to play three concerts in Tokyo and one in Osaka. The recording that became "Live in Japan" was taken at the Osaka concert, the only one on the tour that was recorded. A Japan-only release followed (on Recommended Records Japan), which has been out of print for over 20 years and is virtually impossible to find anywhere. This disc re-issues the concert for the first time, adding the extremely rare, red flexi-disc, live version of the classic, "I Hate America", as a bonus track. "-Ad Hoc Records
