The album was released on LP, compact cassette and compact disc. The "Radio Prague" track is the actual interval signal of the Czechoslovak Radio foreign service, including the time signal and station ID spoken in Czech.
The "This Is Helena", "ABC Auto-Industry" and "International" tracks also include parts of some broadcasts recorded off-air a presenter introducing herself, economic bulletin and news, respectively. It's quite evidently much closer in style to the bands coming second full-length album than the debut Isn't Anything album from ' The multi-layered dynamics are already here, but the production sound is somewhat murkier than what would succeed.
Anyway, this is a very fine ep and the three tracks you won't find on Loveless could easily have been included on that without lowering the quality or the status of that album. My Bloody Valentine "Isn't Anything" The album was the second that I heard with the band after listening to their Album) Loveless Despite being officially an Irish band, American Kevin Shields guitarist, vocalist, composer is the band's mastermind.
Prior to this, the band released a number of singles Album) eps without bassist Debbie Googe and especially also without Bilinda Butcher who contributed in shaping their iconic sound from around when former vocalist Dave Conway left the band. So what lies before '87 is basically music from what sounds like another band, and with Isn't Anything they initiate a style that many bands and artists copied in the early nineties, which may be referred to as 'noise pop' 'shoegaze' and 'dream pop', and which much later led other artists eg.
Only in recent years, I have come across their mini-album debut, This Is Your Bloody Valentinewhich really seems far from the style on this and their earliest releases with focus on 'post-punk', 'gothic rock' and I recall that Robert Smith The Cure in the late s referred to this band as one of his new favourites - and I often wondered if he had heard the style they came to abandon or the style that should become their trademark.
Isn't Anything is not as great as the iconic '91 album but it surely points in that direction - especially tracks 1, 4 and 7. Back in the 90s, I never really enjoyed this all that much, but I do understand its significance as a cornerstone in music history. Maybe, it's great music for background noise when painting or being in a creative process that involves craftsmanship with your hands instead of work that is dependent on more relaxed thinking processes.
Anyway, I don't think the album is easy to let in with it's unusual compositions build on walls of heavy distorted guitars, but if you're capable of seeing it as complex music with another purpose than just echoing nice poetic chorus lines in your head, it may appeal to you.
The album seems like caught between British 'indie pop', which was what Creation Records traditionally released at the time, and a much more unique sound of 'noise pop' echoing Sonic Youth and primarily originating in the US, and which in any case had its roots in the 'post-punk' movement.
