The first vinyl release of an essential song by Officer!, the project of Mick Hobbs (½ Japanese, The Work, The Lowest Note, Flaming Tunes). Backed here by the gloriously surreal "Dogface," the ecstatic, anguished "Life At the Water's Edge" was released on the 1983 cassette 8 New Songs By Mick Hobbs, recorded at Cold Storage with Hobbs (vocals, bass) accompanied by Rick Wilson (drums), Terri Robson (violin), Anna Piva (vocals), Richard Wolfson (keyboards), and Family Fodder's Alig (guitar). Presented in picture sleeve with printed lyric sheet insert. Remastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy, January, 2014. Edition of 300.
