Popular eighties tree piece band fronted by Marty Pellow are set to hit the come back trail and reform.

"We've been working on a new album," said Marty Pellow, who's real name is Martin Pellow. "It's got some good stuff on it."

The band are to take the unusual step of only releasing the album on cassette. For any readers younger than thirty, a cassette is what was set to replace vinyl to transport music on.

"We don't really understand this electromagic down-upping thing," said Pellow. "The record company asked us if we wanted the album in MP3, but to be honest, I didn't know what he meant. So I said no. Then they asked how many CDs we'd think we'd need. I told them there and then that I don't like CDs, and we'd release on cassette."

The band would have also released a vinyl album, but were told that the machinery for producing vinyl albums broke in 2001, and they've been unable to find anybody who knows how it works enough to fix it.

"I think releasing only on cassette is a bad move," said record producer Geoff Leff. "I don't know anybody who still has a working cassette player. I certainly don't. I'm also not sure record shops can still sell cassettes, I don't think they have the right shaped shelving."

Pellow is adamant.

"Last time we released a song," he said, "we were told that cassettes were the future. Well, this is the future, so cassettes it is."

Marty Pellow has been working at a Scuba diving centre in Windermere called Wet Wet Wet.
