To the delight of some open-minded post-punk fans -- fans who also had space for the relatively new, untraditional likes of DevoKraftwerkand Eno in their record collections -- the relative simple-mindedness of Life in a Day was blown to bits and left for dead on the pub floor by Real to Real Cacophony, the wide-eyed carnival-like follow-up released only seven months after its predecessor.

Beggars Day - Skid Row - Slave To The Grind record is certainly as much of an achievement as New Gold Dream -- an achievement that's on a plane with other post-punk landmarks like Metal Box,Entertainment, and Unknown Pleasures.
