Chatshow - Demo K7 (1984)

Here is a demo tape by mid-late 80's UK goth/guitar wave band Chatshow that Michael from Return to the East blog sent me to borrow couple months back. I was never an overall huge fan of the couple 12" EPs they put out, but will say this tape contains some excellent tracks and is the best material I've heard by them. Makes me want to re-listen to their vinyls again for a refresher. "Impossible Dream" is my favourite here.
