Collapsed Lung - Thundersley Invocar
1.Thundersley Invacar
4.Thundersley Invacar (Butt Naked Mix)

First single on Deceptive and absolutely superb, the b-sides are great too.
See it, buy it!

1993, CDS, 10"
Deceptive Records
Collapsed Lung - Chainsaw Wedgie
1.Chainsaw Wedgie
2.First & Sixth
4.First & Sixth (Scatter Mix)

Second single and the last one with Nihal Arthanayake on vocals (he left and formed the Muddy Funksters), superb again.
This time about the dangers of wedgies at school. :O)
Again, essential.

1994, CDS
Deceptive Records
Collapsed Lung - Down With The Plaid Fad
1.Down With The Plaid Fad (Large)
2.Spinning Down
4.Down With The Plaid Fad (Xxlarge)

First single with new vocalist Jim Burke, took a while to grow on me, but now one of my favourite Collapsed Lung songs! 'Spinning Down' and 'Headgames' are absolutely ace.

1994, CDS
Deceptive Records
Collapsed Lung - Dis MX
1.Dis Mx
2.Something Ordinary
3.Dis Mx (Organ-ized Mix)
4.Dis Mx (Abdul Van Halen Mix)

Slightly different style to the other singles, better production and also featuring the b-side 'Something Ordinary' which was so good it's on the first album.
The remix is by Aki Nawaz.

1995, CDS
Deceptive Records
Collapsed Lung - Interactive
1.Interactive (9600 BPS Mix)
2.Lunglist Massive (Slack Agenda)
3.Interactive (14400 BPS Mix)
4.Interactive (Edward Stonelayne Mix)

The first single I didn't rate that much at the time of release, the vocals by Little Annie are cool and I quite like the tune 'Interactive' itself, but I found the B-sides are bit 'so-so' and overall I don't rate this essential.

1995, 7"
Deceptive Records
Collapsed Lung - Connection

Part of the Deceptive Records Xmas series, this is a cover of Elastica's 'Connection' and also features on the Deceptive 50 compilation!
Thanks to Addy for reminding me!
Great cover version, excellent single.

1996, (CDS), (850 601-2)
Collapsed Lung - Eat My Goal 96
1.Eat My Goal (Euro '96 Mix)
2. Eat My Goal (Synchromesh Terror On The Terraces Mix)
3.London Tonight
4. London Tonight (Fila Brazilia Mix)

Re-release of Eat My Goal that features re-arranged tracks from the London Tonight single...very very odd and I wouldn't have thought the band approved...

1998, CDS/?
Deceptive Records,
Collapsed Lung - Eat My Goal
1.Eat My Goal
2.Eat My Goal (Mardi Grass Mix)
3.Eat My Goal (Jackpot Goalie Mix)
4.Jackpot Goalie (Synchromesh Terror On The Terraces Mix)
5.Eat My Goal (Black Cats Mix)
6.Eat My Goal (Instrumental Mix)

The big single!
This is the release from 1998. I've got to add all the various version descriptions from Ant Chapman.
You all know it, but the version on the album and single are excellent compared to the mixes that seems to crop up on compilations all the time.
There are 3 versions that seem to do the rounds, the original album version, this 'Euro 96' version (the one that gets played on Tv and so on as far as I can tell) and a remix by The Black Catz (or the 'Black Catz' Version, I'm not sure), which is pretty flippin' awful.

1.London Tonight
2.London Tonight (Fila Brazilia Mix)
3.Eat My Goal (Euro '96 Mix)
4.Eat My Goal (Synchromesh Terror On The Terraces Mix)

First single from the second album and very lively and upbeat!
Chris Tucker guests on the lead track and Deceptive started using Eat My Goal as a selling point from here on in!
Bit odd, as it's a really great single in it's own right...

1.Board Game (Mach Daddy Single Remix)
2. Board Game (Ballistic Brothers Cut The Games Mix)
3. Ballad Night, Featuring Bilinda Butcher (Boymerang Mix)
4. Board Game (Avenue A Dub Mix)

Had this single, but can't now find it..think it was mostly remixes on the B-sides...hmmm, so much for having all the singles!
The tracklisting above is from the 12" (thanks to Addy van Dijken).

Collapsed Lung - New Song, Old Band Let's Get Jobs

The blurb says "The first Lung vinyl in 20 years! Edition of 300, full colour artwork. You know it makes sense!
Personally, love 'Let's Get Jobs' a little more than the A, though 'New Song, Old Band' was the first song I played in my final
DJ set at Koko.
Either way, these are both superb comeback tracks, Ant Chapman's production, as per, is excellent and there's not a hint in any
aspect of these tracks of this being anything but prime Collapsed Lung.

Both videos can be found on Youtube, at the time of writing and the single can be bought here;

12.Slack Agenda

My favourite album (Pixies excluded) for months of my student life, absolutely excellent walkman stuff, cheers up your day, has tunes to rock along the street to (special mention for the tune 'for those of you who do not enjoy public transport' - Burn Rubber Soul), it's amazing.
Completely different to the (surprise) cooler and more laid back second album (which is still ace!).

6.One Foot Up The Rude Ladder
7.Board Game

9.Casino Kisschase (Featuring Bilinda Butcher)
10. TV Is Life, Elvis

Another brilliant album I spent ages with (and drove my friends mad listening to).
It's a more mature album than the first, but no less excellent.
It's got more variety too, for example a pair of very different tracks feature the guest vocals of Bilinda Butcher (from My Bloody Valentine)
The album is sound and well worth checking out.
