Label: Mercury / Some Bizarre
Reissued 2016, originally released 1987
The Art Of Falling Apart is the second full length album by Soft Cell, reaching #5 on the UK charts. This reissue features the epic 'Martin' (based on the obscure George Romero psycho/vampires movie) on the bonus 12' just like the original release. That very same 12" single includes the controversial 10+ minute "Hendrix Medley" that delighted fans but shocked those without a sense of humor who couldn't comprehend why a synth-based band would record Jimi Hendrix songs. Blasphemy! The album includes the singles "Where the Heart Is" and the double A-sided single "Numbers" / "Barriers".
