This is a very interesting discovery. ... se/1101075

The first track I stumbled upon is Blue Light and I was instantly hooked.
Its not so much the song itself, but the way it actually sounds (production value) is absolutely amazing!

Here is remastered EPs + unreleased tracks.

The first EP is nothing special, but the second - Blue Light (actually just this track in two versions + radio edit) is the one that should have been given a proper worldwide release.

The remaining tracks are all unreleased, but there are a couple of gems there, especially Electric Angel & Walking The Earth Alone - these could have been classics if in the hands of a more prominent 80s artist.

1 I Want To Function With You 3:01
2 It's Time To Become Robots 3:23
3 Mechanical Rights 4:27
4 Interdigitation 6:32
5 Blue Light 5:08
6 Blue Light (Dance Remix) 5:37
7 Dark Day 3:46
8 Electric Angel 5:55
9 Code Blue 3:52
10 Allergic To The Sun 3:47
11 Walking The Earth Alone 4:09
12 Vertigo 4:00

Tracks 1 to 4 original versions appear on "The New Occupants EP" 12" 1982
Tracks 5 & 6 original versions appear on "Blue Light" 12" 1984
Tracks 7 to 12 previously unreleased.

Here the the upload in FLAC - track by track, because - for some strange reason, zippyshare keeps interrupting my connection whenever I try to upload bigger files ....

This actually is currently in print. The album is called "Remastered," available on all digital platforms.

Also, the band is still active:
