doubtful mercies through the medium of barbaric charm

Not so much a separate project, this was a possible title for a release of the material we recorded using the Sinclair's Luck book (see Percy Westerman) and other improvisational things of the time (late 1981). 'Victims of the Idol's Vengeance', the name of an unreleased track, was another title entertained for a while. We would often talk about how we could batch things for release, only to be overtaken by new material. (Gerard)
