This Final Frame "Stories" is an exceptionally good track.....too bad that the rest of their 80s outpost frankly - isn`t.

Sure would love to get my hands on this German only 12" marbled vinyl release.... ... se/1217436

.....seems to be very much sought after.....reflected in the discogs price of the item.....

I always get This Final Frame confused with This Island Earth.....who are IMHO very much superior with their 2 superb single releases.....
