More Info:

Limited red colored vinyl LP pressing. Past Night From Glasgow reissue and repackage It's Immaterial's 1986 debut album Life's Hard and Then You Die on vinyl. The album was released several months after the single "Driving Away from Home (Jim's Tune)" reached the Top 20 on the UK Singles Chart, and spent three weeks on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at number 62. Simon Braithwaite of Smash Hits wrote that Life's Hard and Then You Die shows that It's Immaterial "write jolly good pop songs. In fact, everything else here is just as inspired and original as their recent hit." In a retrospective review, Michael Sutton of All Music wrote, "Musically, the LP is all over the place - new wave country, blues, folk, and synth pop. Somehow the smorgasbord of styles works, because the band members aren't being eclectic just for the sake of it; they simply have a wide canvas, keeping the album fresh from beginning to end."
