Free Music Friday! Beach Fossils - "Plastic Flowers (The Wake cover)"

In celebration of record store day, Captured Tracks is releasing two classic, hard to find singles by highly influential Scottish post-punk band, The Wake. These two releases book-end the 80's for the band, as their privately released On Our Honeymoon 7" on Scan in 1982 was their first (and only) pre-Factory record, while Crush the Flowers 7" is their final release in the 80's (1989) and their first post-Factory record for the illustrious Sarah label.
