Quicksand-Divorce 7" Promo

An old friend came round a bit ago and sold me a load of mainly Metal records but amongst them was this, a two track promo 7” for Quicksand’s second album ‘Manic compression’. Must admit that I never rated that album, I don’t even own a copy anymore. I wouldn’t have gone out of my way for this but since it was amongst them and basically free I couldn’t say no.
 What’s interesting is that even though Revelation pressed the vinyl and Island did the CD, this single is a purely major label issue. I remember owning a 4 track 12” promo for their first album ‘slip’, fuck knows whatever happened to that copy

I've always prefered Manic Compression to Slip. While I enjoy both albums, Manic Compression doesn't seem as "clean" as Slip, and feels like there is a bit more bite to it.
