Originally released in 1986 on Pink Records. This was arguably McCarthy’s nest moment. This issue has a different B side to the original “The Fall”.

By the time McCarthy appeared on the NME’s C86 cassette they had already been playing together for a couple of years and released two excellent singles. Their debut “In Purgatory” and the indie masterpiece “Red Sleeping Beauty” The following year McCarthy released the brilliant “Frans Hals” before unleashing their debut album “I Am A Wallet”.

Now recognized as an indie-pop masterpiece it has gone on to achieve cult status, receiving praise from the likes of Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers). Known by today's indie accolites as the band that spawned Tim Gane and Leititia Sadier (who of course went on to form Stereolab)
