Kit – How To Break This

Liverpool’s Kit formed in 1984 from the ashes of Send No Flowers. They released three 12″s and one LP between 1988 and 1990 on Play Hard Records (a Manchester label run by Dave Haslam and Nathan McGough). “How To Break This” is my favorite track taken from their “Unshakeable Faith” LP. For this recording, Kit featured Lyn Sangster (on guitar and vocals), Michelle Brown (on bass), Nat Smith (on drums), Phil Luckin (on trumpet), and Kenny Manson (also on guitar). Maybe someday a proper Kit reissue will see the light of day, but then again I say that about most bands I post about here. Luckily their releases are still available for a decent price second hand if you look hard enough.

And again, here’s that nice review by Neal from The Hellfire Sermons for those who didn’t read it the first time.

  2. Oh, I’d love to hear that track again. I sold “Hand to Mouth” (when I became insane and decided to sell half my LP collection in 2007). I regret it ever since.
