Compilation of singles recorded for Glass Records. Pressed on Yellow vinyl with orange & black splatter.

Includes printed inner sleeve with posters and postcards Religious Overdose formed in 1979 and alongside the likes of PIL, Joy Division and Bauhaus helped forge the sound that became to be known as post-punk.

In just 2 years their experimental songs were pushing boundaries. From the hypnotizing drum machine led debut "25 minutes" and the krautrock influenced "I said go" to the synth infused new wave of "Blow The Back Off" and their final single.

The sprawling 7 minute "The Girl With The Disappearing Head" This is a celebration of the much underrated and important Religious Overdose.
