Live In Japan - July 1980

4 tracks recorded live in Tokyo in March 1980. Excellent performances and all four numbers are significantly different to the usual versions. Some copies of this EP have the legend "Super Sound Single" emblazoned across the sleeve, but the disc inside is the same as the usual version.

The back sleeve has been made out of the Japanese Quiet Life LP obi front and back. The boxed advert in the middle "The Heros" refers to a calendar/magazine that was available in late 1979/early 1980.
