The Plan

BBL 55 CD (1999 reissue)

This album is a collection of songs Tubeway Army recorded in 1977/1978 to pitch to record companies to get signed and were never really intended to be released as an album.

The songs have a strong punk influence as Gary considered this angle the best shot to strike a recording deal.

Many of the songs,  or parts of them, have been refined and released on later albums.

Gary quotes in the the liner notes that by the time Beggars Banquet released this album in 1984, that he had forgotten he'd even written half these songs.
