‘Bad Times Ahead’ is a 12” EP compiling the 4 rarest songs amongst the ones ever released by Aimless Device. Except for the title song, which saw the light on the 1987 v.a. ‘From Behind The Bushes’ compilation LP, none of the rest were ever put onto vinyl. ‘The Flame’, an Annabel Lamb cover from 1986 appeared only on the v.a. ‘Mad in Belgium 3’ cassette. ‘Hyena (1988 remix)’ is a quite different sounding version compared to the 1985 original and was included in the v.a. ‘Hyena Ist Tot’ cd-only compilation. ‘Cry’ was released for the first time in 2010 on Aimless Device’s posthumous cd-only compilation ‘Coats Of Many Colours’.
We thought it was a good idea to compile these not-so-well-known songs into a 12” EP an make a very special homage to this band that we all love around here and has quite a cult following specially in Spain. All songs have been carefully remastered and we are pleased to bring you the ‘Bad Times Ahead’ 12” in our usual split vinyl run, 135 copies in clear vinyl and 150 copies in standard black, hand numbered, housed in a matt finish sleeve with a double sided insert and download code.
But this time we also have the so called ‘Bad Edition’, which consists in just 50 copies in translucent blue vinyl, hand numbered, housed in a differently designed hand crafted sleeve with printed inner sleeve (on metallic paper!) and an awesome band poster!! It also includes the regular insert and download code. More expensive but well worth the money!!
