Archive: The The – ‘Perfect’ press ad 1983

This fell out of a book along with a few more The The clippings the other evening.

An advert for The The – Perfect, which has been cut from a 1993 issue of Smash Hits magazine. I’ll scan the other clippings in due course. In the meantime its a perfect day to have a listen.

Its Matt Johnson doing his best Syd Barrett impression as he passes between Burning Blue Soul and Soul Mining.  Personally I prefer the version that turned up on the cassette release of the latter along with some other cuts from the unreleased ‘Pornography Of Despair’ LP. Sadly that album remains locked in the Johnson vault.
