The Icicle Works: If You Want To Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song (1987)
My Canadian pressing of this record was bundled with a 12" bonus sampler. The bonus LP contains two tracks each from The Icicle Works, Pierce Turner, The Go-Betweens, and Passion Fodder. Both tracks from The Icicle Works appear on the record, so that is odd. Wicklow Hills from Pierce Turner really brings back the memories. It is a really great song.
Again, I think I can say that this is not as good as the debut record, but it's a fine record. Understanding Jane was a hit, as I recall.
