additional information
With Sons And Fascination and Sister Feelings Call awarding the band their best chart performance to date, and the band having completed the UK leg of their tour a month previously, Virgin issued Sweat In Bullet to mark the separation of the albums and release some choice live cuts from their recent gigs.

Issued on 7", 7" double pack and 12", it was the glossiest Simple Minds release yet. But it was the double pack and 12" which were the most interesting, featuring three tracks recorded at Hammersmith Odeon on the 25th September 1981.

The Theme kicked off with Pete Walsh's solid extended remix of Sweat In Bullet, a no-nonsense track from Sons And Fascination. (This remix impressed the band who offered him the producer's chair for their next single). 20th Century Promised Land represented the more ethereal Sister Feelings Call. League Of Nations and In Trance As Mission both appeared on the 12" and therefore graced the Theme (which unfortunately left the live recording of Premonition, the bonus track on the 7 double pack, in vinyl purgatory).
