It was pressed By Pye Records (Sales) Ltd. And recorded at Spaceward Studios and mastered At Pye Studios. An EP called 'Work In Progress' (SCRIT-2 / RT-34; 11/79) followed, in co-operation with Rough Trade. The band's subsequent records were on Rough Trade and later Virgin. Distributed By Rough Trade Records. Scritti Politti are a British band, originally formed in 1977 in Leeds, Yorkshire, by Cardiff-born singer-songwriter Green Gartside. He is the only member of the band to have remained throughout the group's history. Beginning as a Leftist post-punk group led by art school student Gartside, Scritti Politti transitioned into a mainstream pop music project in the early to mid-1980s, enjoying significant success in the record charts in the UK and the US.
