About this release

Released in April 1981, “Future Shock” entered the UK album chart at # 2 and saw the band at their peak. Their cover of “Trouble” reached number 14, and was followed into the singles chart by “Mutually Assured Destruction” (# 32), “New Orleans” (# 17), and “No Laughing In Heaven” (# 31), which is still in Ian’s live set. In August that year they headlined the Reading Festival.

This CD features the original album (which included two of the singles) and eight bonus tracks, including the other two chart singles along with the singles’ many nonalbum b-sides.

The huge booklet features all the amazing sci-fi paintings from the original 16 page 12×12 booklet that came with the LP. It also contains a transcription of a short play by Ian about the nuclear holocaust originally printed in the extremely limited edition booklet that came with initial copies of “Mutually Assured Destruction”.
