O POSITIVE - Only Breathing 5-song EP (Throbbing Lobster 9)

O Positive - Only Breathing 5-song EP (Throbbing Lobster #9) Early 1986. Really thoughtful stuff, huge hooks and grooves. (No one called it coldwave back then but O+ should make today's coldwave/darkwave collectors very happy indeed...) If they had started off on a major label with this material they'd probably have been stars, but their follow-ups didn't have the edge, and they bounced around several majors before quitting, more or less, in the mid-1990s. The Only Breathing EP sold like crazy in Boston. (We even celebrated by re-pressing with a gold stripe on the cover instead of red but the band hated it so we reverted.) There was also a defective pressing with the B-sides pressed off-centre. I thought we'd got rid of all of those at the time (they're easy to tell because they all have a deep and thick pressing ring in the labels) but I've just recycled another 150 so the few clean copies left now seem quite scarce...
ONLY sold in unsealed/mint/unplayed condition. $12
[mis-pressed copies are available for $6 each if you want to center them yourself...]
