Run to Hell and Looking for Love were recorded on a Fostex 4 track at a little studio called Heroes in Barbers lane at the back of the Arndale Centre, Cheapside, Luton, Beds, England.and can be seen as a ruin on Google Earth. look for Barbers Lane/Silver Street central Luton and you'll see a triangle shape room. with no roof.

 

The single continues to travel the world in auctions and record fairs and latest is that it was recently sold for $240 in a USA auction back in 2007 check this link out

The Record ...

All sold probably within a few weeks of release. But this had it's share of bad luck at the time because when the Record came back from the French manufacturer we received hundreds of records with our label stamped on it but a French band playing. All had to go back to France and sorted again.

When we eventually received the record about two months later it came with the insignia stamp of the "Porky Prime Cut" which to record collectors is supposed to mean something good.

Flyer from the Luton College gig back in 1982 thanks to Tim Gale and Steve Rothwell

June 1986 Steve was back and although they considered using the Founded name chose not to as Ali and Dave were doing other things, so came up with the name Beauty and the Bitch.
