Convenience 7″ (Original 1989 Mixes)


The original mixes of Convenience and I Fall Upon The Thorns Of Life! I Bleed!!, first released on 7″ and 12″ vinyl in 1989. This is the first digital release of the original mix of Convenience.

This download makes the original mix of our 1989 single, Convenience, available for the first time in digital form – high quality MP3 files of both Convenience and its b-side I Fall Upon The Thorns Of Life! I Bleed!! Written by Armstrong/Blackborow, the songs were originally released on the band’s House Of Teeth label, catalogue nos. HOT7 002 and HOT12 002.

All digital versions of Convenience available previously have featured the 2009 remix of the song, which was made (out of necessity – the original 1989 stereo mix being found to be missing from the BOB archive) specially for inclusion on 2009’s Kats Karavan – The History Of John Peel On The Radio. The 2009 remix also appeared on BOB – The Singles And EPs, released in 2015. A reel containing the original mixes was subsequently found in the loft of our old manager, Paul Thompson, lovingly transferred to digital and now made available here.
