Maximum Joy: Station M.X.J.Y. CD

Japanese-only reissue of the lone album by this UK group, originally issued on Y in 1982. Some of these tracks showed up on the Crippled Dick compilation Unlimited (1979-1983), but not all. Includes the original 8 tracks off the album, two 12" tracks, "White And Green Space" (Extraterrestrial Mix) and an unreleased version of "Why Can't We Live Together?". "Maximum Joy was an offshoot of the Pop Group. They were a post-punk band that existed after the Pop Group's break-up in the early '80s. Signed to the Y label, Maximum Joy issued a trio of 12" and 7" singles prior to making Station M.X.J.Y., their lone album. Apparently the band split shortly thereafter. Former Pop Group members/guitarists Dan Catsis (who had previously spent time in the Glaxo Babies) and John Waddington formed the group, and they were joined by Janine Rainforth (vocals, clarinet, violin), Kev Evans (bass, piano, vocals), and Tony Wrafter (sax, flute, trumpet)
