News: The Pressure Group retrospective out now

by on 16th May 2017


Back in 1987, Hull band The Pressure Group released a low-key 7″ EP, “Only God Is Perfect” on their own Poltroon Records imprint. That record is now insanely rare and copies change hands for three figure sums in the record collecting fraternity – and until now, the songs contained therein have never been reissued.

Now however, German indie label Firestation Records (which specialises in unearthing lost indie gems of the 80s and 90s) have released a full retrospective CD of The Pressure Group, featuring all four tracks from “Only God Is Perfect” plus a further eight tracks previously unreleased cuts. The album – “All Of This And More” – has been put together with real care and attention and gives this fine local band an overdue, but well deserved, reappraisal. You can buy the CD direct from Firestation Records – go to their website and follow the instructions (they don’t have an online store, you have to email them and they’ll tell you what to do – it’s safe, we did it, basically you pay them via PayPal and then they’ll send you your CD by return).

A vital addition to your “Hull collections”, we think – grab one while they’re still available!
