2009 reissue of the '80s Mod band's self-financed second album including bonus demos. Makin' Time are now often remembered as Martin Blunt's first band. Blunt went on to fame and three number one albums with the Charlatans. However there is so much more to them. They were a dynamic live outfit, whose sound often hinged around the striking looks and sound of organist Fay Hallam, with her Julie Driscoll-esque vocals and her songwriting talent. This is especially to the fore on the No Lumps of Fat Or Gristle LP where she wrote majority of the tunes. Produced by Will Birch at Alaska Studios, it is a less poppy album than their debut and really does justice to how the band sounded live. The demos were recorded prior to the release of this album and includes an alternate version of their single 'Pump It Up', an early take of the album track 'She Crept Up from Behind' and a bunch of previously unreleased cuts. Big Beat.
