Lifetones : For A Reason

Ok. This is what i've been waiting for. Went through some trouble finding this, gathering it finally from three different sources. An important addition to round-up the story of This Heat, guitarist (and more) Charles Bullen's first solo release from 1983. Six songs done by the man himself, lacking perhaps the sharp focus and intensity of Heat but compensating with added warmth and a more personal angle. Very dub influenced, showing also his interests towards more dance-hall oriented music.
My favourite post so far, dedicated to all dead blogs.

Buy it at Lights In The Attic

How long have I been looking for this, since someone nicked my vinyl copy and left me with only the sleeve? Discovered it in the eighties whilst working at Melody Maker.
Many many thanks RZ.
