Formed in December 1981 from the ashes of West Yorkshire band The Elements, this compilation brings together video footage of Skeletal Family. From the early days at Bradford University, with the four piece line up of Anne-Marie, Stan, Trotwood and drummer Howard Daniels, through various supports at London's Marquee club - and also includes promo videos for the singles 'Promised Land' and 'Restless' (this particular version produced/directed by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and Russell Senior). Though lots of footage was recorded through the band's career, very little still appears to exist, with large parts of this compilation gleaned from the bands personal collection. Starting from the classic debut single 'Trees' and working through the bands two original albums, 'Burning Oil' and 'Futile Combat', the collection is brought up to date with new material, including 'Faithless Whore' and a re-recorded version of The Elements (pre-Skeletal Family) tune 'Lies' featuring reformed 2004 line-up of Stan, Trotwood, Karl Heinz, Martin and vocalist Claire BB.
