"Artery are one of the most unsung of all the Sheffield bands to emerge from the post-punk era. At that time the city was a hotbed of creative activity, with the punk movement having broken down the barriers, leaving room for new and original ideas. Artery were certainly original -- unique even -- the evidence of which is amply displayed on this compilation of some of the band's finest moments. John Peel was a fan of the band and invited them to record two sessions for his Radio 1 show. So impressed were the band by the results they achieved at Maida Vale that some of the tracks were included in the mini-album Oceans and are included here. Compiled by Simon Hinkler from the band (and later of The Mission), this album includes all the early singles 'Mother Moon,' 'Unbalanced,' 'Cars In Motion' & 'The Clown,' most of the Oceans mini-album and the excellent and never-previously released INPUT Studios demos. Please do not confuse this album with the recent Cherry Red release Into The Garden which was not sanctioned by the band and confusingly, seemed to have been originally entitled Afterwards - A Collection. Available as a strictly limited edition utilizing the themes of the original artwork of the singles and mini-album, this is the introduction to one of the UK's most innovative and intense groups of the past twenty years."
