The debut album album also came we a free three track 12" single.

Pinpoint were formed by Arthur Billingsley (AKA Arturo Bassick) in 1978 after he had temporarily left The Lurkers. Other band members were Dave Allen (Bass and Vocals) and Hugh Griffiths (Drums).

Their first single was "Richmond" which got record of the week in "Sounds" magazine and was later covered by German Punk giants Die Toten Hosen. The band went on to release a further two singles and one album.

This album contains some classic tracks such as "Listen to the Snow", "Blind Eyes" and "Hospital" but introduced a lot of the techno stuff that was so popular in the 80s. May never go down as an all time great, but well worth a listen.

Arthur recently told me "I think the album is nothing like we where and I have only bad memories of making it as I hated the producer Martin Rushent he was a horrible cunt, we only done 3 gigs after that album and split up, the bass player became Rushent's engineer, and worked on the "Dare" album by the "Human League", if you listen to that album you can hear loads of sounds that Rushent used Pinpoint as guinea pigs for, I blame him for us splitting up."
