The Busters. Germany's answer to...everything. That's why Europe's banks are failing...Germany hasn't sent in The Busters to work on the monetary policy. As soon as we start hearing more from the Busters again, everything will be alright. The Couch Potatoes album features a few Laurel Aitken appearances. This is a good thing. It was released on the German Weserlabel, but a version with a Moon catalogue number also came out (the vinyl was only produced in Europe and released in the U.S.). The Weserlabel version is much easier to find than the Moon one. Both were on black vinyl. There were two versions of the Moon cassette: one with a clear shell and another with a green shell. The CD was definitely released on Weserlabel. I thought there was a Moon CD as well, but I haven't been able to confirm that lately.
