The Passage | Pindrop

Pindrop, their dense first album, originally appeared in 1980 on the Object label and has been unavailable for two decades. Here, Passage mainman Richard 'Dick' Witts performs most of the material. Stand-out tracks include Watching You Dance, Troops Out and the powerful 16 Hours. Although Pindrop was recorded in less than a week in an 8 track studio, its rough edges and tense, claustrophobic atmosphere all underpin the central lyrical theme, which is fear. The thirteen (yup!) bonus tracks include all material from their first two ultra-rare eps, featuring ex-Fall bassist Tony Friel, and a superb Manchester radio session from February 1981. The album has been digitally remastered and the sleevenotes feature a detailed history of the band.
