Description (English):
Eyeless In Gaza formed a key part of the early Cherry Red Records roster, and continue to find new fans today. Their work – an intriguing mixture of sound art and poetry – sits outside of the world most other artists inhabit, and exists in a timeless place entirely of the band’s own design.

Still working and recording today, the band have overseen every stage of this release, and contributed photographs and a previously unreleased recording.

Every serious music collection should contain at least – at least! – the introductory glance at this remarkable band which ‘Picture The Day’ provides.
