Recorded April 1990 at The Durham Street Studios, Hartlepool.

After Love Parade played their final gig in March, I booked some time at a community studio in Hartlepool to record some new songs that the band hadn't rehearsed. I'd heard about Durham Street from Patrick Skelly of The Prescriptions, with whom I'd exchanged letters. He was clearly a very talented musician and I asked him to help me out with these new songs. We recorded Eternally, Perfect Combination, Shine and this one, Never Mattered, over a couple of days for the princely sum of £15 (if I remember correctly). Patrick played piano on this pretty track, which also features an incredibly wet and tuneless vocal from myself, which precluded it's appearance on the compilation. Sorry. I think I had the gentler songs from Darklands, or perhaps I'll Be Your Mirror in mind with this one...
