Optic Nerve present Sorted! including first time reissues of Party Day's critically acclaimed and highly sought-after debut album Glasshouse from 1985 and the 1986 follow-up Simplicity. Including all tracks from the singles and EP's, plus unreleased recordings. Party Day, with their bass led rhythms and sharp powerful drums gigged extensively and released their debut single "Row The Boat Ashore" in 1983. Their brand of post-punk indie rock with Gothic overtones soon got the attention of DJ John Peel and sold out almost immediately. The follow up single "Spider" from 1984 again received extensive airplay from John Peel and received rave reviews from the national music press. Their self-released debut album Glasshouse was released in 1985 to glowing reviews and has gained popularity over the years. Now very collectable, it exchanges hands for big money on the second-hand market. The Glasshouse EP followed later in '85 heralding a more commercial approach and widening appeal. Their second album Simplicity was released in 1986.
