According to Exclaim, 1972 Records will issue two of the band's compilations on vinyl. The first will be 1988?s 'Barbed Wire Kisses (B-Sides And More)', which contains a collection of limited singles, rarities and B-sides from the band's early career and material from their 1985 album 'Psychocandy' and 1987's 'Darklands'. The second will be 1993?s 'The Sound Of Speed' – which contains material from around 1989's 'Automatic' and 1992's 'Honey's Dead'.
