I became aware of the end of April 88, when I heard “Jesus And The Devil” on the radio. With only that one song, they grabbed me. This 7″ is a really good one. The songs are great. The then oh so typical comparisons with the Simple Minds and U2 are certainly not completely out of thin air, but in 1988/89 they did not hit on a lot of bands? Highlight  of the 7″ is “Jesus And The Devil”!
