Skeletal Family
Eternal Singles, Albums, Rarities, BBC Sessions, Live, Demos 1982-2015 5CD box
(2016)



This 5-CD set boasts all of the Skeletal Family's independent recordings for the Red Rhino label between 1983 and 1985. Both of the band's albums Burning Oil and Futile Combat are included, alongside all their non-album singles, B-sides and rare compilation appearances. For the first time, many of the band's unissued BBC sessions for John Peel, Kid Jensen and Janice Long are also included. The fourth disc concentrates on live material, drawn principally from a show at Folkestone Peter Pipers (01-03-84) and a later show with Anne-Marie's replacement Katrina Phillips. It culminates with a version of Bob Dylan's "Knocking On Heaven's Door", with guests Andrew Eldritch (Sisters Of Mercy) and Wayne Hussey (The Mission). The fifth and final CD boasts a clutch of demos of previously unissued, brand new songs by the modern-day Skeletal Family, alongside earlier demos and some live reunion material.
