On 9/12/2019 I had the following email from Martin Witherford:

Hi just a quick email to correct some of the information that you have for this band. My name is Martin. I played guitar for Anorexia until late 1987 when I left. Bish then joined the band and played guitar and wouldn't have appeared on the demo tape in 1986 which wasnt recorded at Rich Bitch because we could never get a booking there. I know I left the band at the end of '87 as it was after my daughter was born. We done a tape at I think it was called Fastix Studios but never Rich Bitch as we didn't fit their image after they moved to the new building.

This doesn't fit the information on the Radical Riot cover which states that it was recorded at Rich Bitch and also featured Bish on guitar. The liner notes on the 1987 single also has a shout out to Rich Bitch. Anyone else from the band able to clear this one up?
