Ellery Bop for several years prior to finding this ep fairly recently. Good lot these boys turned out to be, at least evidenced by these four tracks that find them drawing moderate inspiration from early Simple Minds, fellow Liverpudlians Echo and the Bunnymen, and Killing Joke. Bit of a noir edge to these fellows as well, though luckily devoid of any overt gloomy schtick. You can indulge in some of EB's earlier singles amassed here. I haven't seen it confirmed elsewhere, but the band's Wikipedia page (of all sources) claims that fresh Ellery Bop music is on the horizon for later this year.
