Alien Sex Fiend - Liquid Head In Tokyo (Live)
Album Info :
"Liquid Head In Tokyo" was Alien Sex Fiend's first totally live album - live with no overdubs of any kind (unlike many so-called "live" albums!) - and was initially released as a vinyl LP in July 1985. It was recorded over two shows on 17.01.85 at Tsubaki House in Tokyo during Alien Sex Fiend's notorious sell out Japanese tour. The track "Back To The Egg" was specially written for the tour and is not available elsewhere, also included are Indie Chart top ten hits, “R.I.P.”, "Dead And Buried" and "E.S.T.". In 1996 Liquid Head in Tokyo was re-issued on CD in both the UK & the US with the addition of 4 bonus tracks to the original 8 vinyl LP tracks, these were "Dead And Buried" (taken from the 12" single), "Gurl At The End Of My Gun" (from the 12" Ignore The Machine single), "New Christian Music" (10" RIP single version) plus Wild Women.
A video was also recorded during the 2 shows - PAL CRF4 - the Liquid Head In Tokyo Video. In 2005 this video footage was coupled with "A Purple Glistener" video footage from an Alien Sex Fiend show in the UK from 1983 to create A Purple Glistener / Liquid Head In Tokyo DVD.
Trainspotter corner : The title Liquid Head in Tokyo came from the copious amounts of alcohol on the band's rider!
