4-Piece Demo lines up three songs in 10 minutes, and it passes quick. Captured while the group was briefly a quartet, completed by bassist Janice Goodlett and drummer Carole McGowan, this recording captures a Strawberry Switchblade only hinted at by their existing recordings: a cutie garage group hiding something desperate and nihilistic beneath their gently shambolic exterior.

Strawberry Switchblade was a new wave duo from Glasgow, Scotland, UK, formed in 1981 by Rose McDowall and Jill Bryson. Bonded during the Glasgow punk scene of the late 1970s, first as friends, then as bandmates.

1982 4-Piece Demo is the first official, fully-licensed and unreleased material to be released under the name Strawberry Switchblade in 30 years. Since disbanding amid major record label acrimony and personal differences in 1986, the already-cult band have since grown in stature and legend. Remastered and restored by Sean Pennycook from the original cassette, with artwork based on a single photographic contact sheet (the only visual evidence of the band in this form) and with a booklet of photographs and new text.

About as unwieldy a title I’ve heard in a while, it does accurately reflect the contents of this 3-song EP, the original demo from the original 4-piece lineup, featuring guitarists Jill Bryson and Rose McDowall and soon to depart rhythm section, Janice Goodlett and Carole McGowan on bass and drums respectively. Bryson and McDowall would skyrocket to brief success before going their separate ways, leaving only one official album behind, although their fanatic followers have uncovered numerous demos and unreleased material over the ensuing three and a half decades

Before influential Scottish '80s pop/new-wave cult heroes Strawberry Switchblade were a duo, they were a short-lived 4-piece, formed in Glasgow in 1982. The lost demo, which has been circulating for years via rips of questionable quality, will be the first official Strawberry Switchblade release in 30 years, remastered and restored from the original cassette.
