Originally released on vinyl LP in 1979 this CD reissue of "The Way Out" also includes the classic "Move" EP and three home-recorded songs. The album was recorded at Surrey Sound and was the first solo release by the multi-talented Jim Whelton, who went on to form the It's War, Boys label and play with (a.o.) Amos & Sara, The Just Measurers, Die Trip Computer Die and a hundred others. Acclaimed by everyone who ever heard it, "The Way Out" remains a definitive post-punk landmark, combining high-end conceptual art, intuitive musique concrete, found objects, extended song and elaborate - often zany - studio-as-instrument mixdown.

"Totally sums up the very best experimentation to emerge from the New Wave - a classic of bric-a-brac nonconformity." - Steven Stalpeton
"Weirdly beautiful." Douglas Wolk
"One big ball of fun." Edwin Pouncey
"A monument to being radically out of step with fashion." Chris Cutler
"Makes even Syd Barrett seem a little tame." The Sound Projector
"A masterpiece - bursting with idea and twisted conventions." - Audion
