Mr & Mrs Vanian - (Dont Care collection)
In contrast to his rather wreckless compatriots, Dave Vainian remains rather aloof during this time of brewing Damned disquiet, in part due to his mysterious Bela Lugosi-ish vampire frontman image but also in part due to his new bride, Laura who he married today.

Now back in the UK are still trying to rectify the muddy mix on their debut album. So they give Advision Studios: another try with mixes of Baby Talk, Going Steady and One Track Mind.
