First time on CD for James Freud’s debut album from 1981. Features the hit single ‘Modern Girl’ plus 8 bonus tracks.

From Teenage Radio Stars to James Freud and The Radio Stars, to Models and later solo albums, James Freud had a celebrated and successful career that spanned over 25 years. Breaking Silence was his first album and it featured the hit singles ‘Modern Girl’ and ‘Enemy Lines’.

Freud impressed none other than Gary Numan during his Australian tour and took up his offer to travel to the UK to work on his follow-up album. Freud’s unusual, and often hilarious adventures with Numan, were recounted in his first autobiography “I Am The Voice Left From Drinking”. The demos they recorded together remained unreleased until this reissue.
