More Info:

Repressing. Girls At Our Best were one of the finest, most life-affirming bands who were part of a new breed of independent acts who emerged in the early '80s. Long-standing fan John Peel once referred to them as one of the few groups that made the period bearable. Formed in Leeds from the ashes of legendary original punk band SOS, the group were fronted by distinctive female vocalist Jude 'Jo' Evans, forming a songwriting team with guitarist James Alan and bass player Gerard Swift after they met at art college. All four of their singles for their own Record Records, Rough Trade and Happy Birthday Records are included here as bonus tracks - including the wonderful 'Getting Nowhere Fast' (later covered by The Wedding Present), it's coruscating b-side 'Warm Girls', 'Politics!', 'Go For Gold' and 'Fast Boyfriends'. Also included is a session for BBC DJ Richard Skinner. As a final bonus, there's also a virgin demo from the band's very final recording session. And all tracks have been digitally remastered from source tapes. The liner notes, written by No More Heroes & Independence Days author Alex Ogg, were written with the band, while artwork incorporates copies of original single sleeves, photographs and memorabilia.
