Many thanks to Jeffo for ripping these early singles from The Wild Flowers. If you aren't already familiar with this UK based post-punk band (most famous, perhaps, thanks to Mighty Lemon Drops guitarist Dave Newton's involvement), grab their first LP over at Phoenix Hairpins. I listen to that LP at least once a week, and I'm not one to get too repetitious with my listening habits, so that's saying something...
The version of "Melt Like Ice" was released in 1983, and is rather different than the version we've all come to know and love. I can't rank one over the other, but folks seem to prefer the 7'' version. The second A-side is the same as the LP version, so you won't find it zipped up here. However, both B-sides, two excellent slices of post-punk bliss, are contained within. Dig it:
The Wild Flowers- Melt Like Ice 7'' (1983)
1. Melt Like Ice
2. The Chosen Proof
The Wild Flowers- Things Have Changed (Which Should Have Stayed The Same) 7'' (1984)
1. Things Have Changed (Which Should Have Stayed The Same)
2. Second Thought
