VOLUME 14, Reading 95 Special
Article from the 36-track Volume 14 CD and booklet (which included Move to Limit Slabs)
Those crazy Prolapse people have just completed a storming tour with Wales' finest Gorky's Zygotic Mynci. The band are currently between labels, as they say, but will release a mini-LP this October on the Lissy's imprint. A split single is also due (shared with Gorky's) on the Love Train label. [Sadly, it never happened.]
