This was a 1982 compilation tape issued by UK music paper New Musical Express and features the only officially-released Ravishing Beauties track.
‘Futility’ also appears on the album Promise Nothing.
Other artists on this release included Yello, Cabaret Voltaire, Robert Wyatt, Billy Mackenzie/BEF and Elvis Costello & The Attractions.
‘Futility’ takes its title and words from the poem by Wilfred Owen.
In a pre-internet age, these compilations were often a perfect window into expanding a listener’s music tastes, as well as giving independent labels and artists a larger platform.
