Alien Sex Fiend - Curse Album Info :
The self-produced, landmark record that is "Curse" was Alien Sex Fiend's 7th studio album. The Fiend's 1990 original "Curse" vinyl LP had 6 bonus tracks added to create the CD version, giving a total of 15 cuts of the group at their most eccentric best. The superb "Now I'm Feeling Zombiefied" single with its mutant psycho riffs is included, alongside the four-part epic orchestral "Katch 22" and the deranged "Eat! Eat! Eat!" on what is generally regarded as one of Alien Sex Fiend's strongest studio outings up to this point in their career. The track "Mad Daddy Drives a U.F.O." is a cover version originally written and recorded by The Cramps. In October 2002 this CD was re-issued and was moved into Anagram Records new Goth Series Collection. The front and back covers, booklet and disc are the same as the original CD release, but the re-issued CD can be distinguished from the original by the addition of a discography to the booklet's lyrics and additional writing on the now clear front spine which says "ALIEN SEX FIEND (in yellow) - CURSE (in red)" on a green background.
June 2016 : This re-issue features the Curse album as one CD of a 4 CD Box Set entitled Classic Albums (Volume 2) with all tracks as shown above, the extra bonus tracks on this re-issue include the awesome "Psych Out Zombie Dub" and the rare megamix "Curse of The Manic Maxi". The CD has been packaged in a mini-replica of the original LP sleeve.
Trainspotter corner : After the initial recording budget was nearly spent on just 3 tracks in outside recording studios, Nik and Mrs Fiend decided to set up their own studio and with engineering assistance from Doc Milton, not only was the Curse album finished but also The Fiends now had the future use of the studio.
