As If To Say ...

OJD 1 Burning Ice Records 1986

MELODY MAKER REVIEW 

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY ..... This is our debut album from way back when we were first signed.  We got to choose our own label name - which is where the name BURNING ICE comes from ( a mix of two titles on the album ).  No expense was spared - we were booked into a top studio & the sleeve was made in full colour with printed lyrics on the inner bag.  However - the company subsequently went bust shortly before the release & we were able to buy our stock, recording & song rights back at a fraction of the cost.  We then cleaned up by selling thousands of copies at our many gigz across the South-East.  Sadly because the records were not sold in shops - the sales never counted towards any charts - but then again nobody else took any money from us - so who cares.  Radio One even played the record & Melody Maker gave us the above review after we tracked down Mick Mercer one lunchtime in a London pub and landed the album in his lap.

There's only a few of these left - so snap up a piece of history whilst you still can.
