    Yeah...this was originally released on 4AD's 'Lonely Is An Eyesore' compilation, dating from June 1987. WTROADS was released one month later...

    Sounds like an outtake from Within the Realm of a Dying Sun, just brilliant.

    It's tragic that so few have heard this, since it's not on any of their albums.
