After The Clean split in mid-1979, Hamish Kilgour, now as a frontman, formed The Sobs in Auckland with Michael Lawry (bass), Gary Hunt (drums) and Peter Hoffman (guitar) ex-Terrorways. They were short-lived and he soon headed back to Dunedin. (text originally c/o Michael Higgins for Audioculture)

The live track (from 1979 Island of Real, Auckland gig) is called ‘Complications’ and was later recorded by The Clean, it’s the last track on the Getaway LP.
