Hope of Heaven is the first and only album by Nyam Nyam. Formed in Hull in 1979 by Paul Trynka and Trevor Simpson, the band issued self-released single When We Can't Make Laughter Stay before attracting the attention of New Order bassist Peter Hook, who produced pulsing electro floor-filler Fate for Factory Benelux. Nyam Nyam then tweaked the interest of 4AD label boss Ivo Watts-Russell, although ultimately their album Hope of Heaven would appear on sister label Situation Two in 1984.
The following year the group issued one more EP, The Architect, before disbanding. Unjustly overlooked for three decades, their studio recordings are now collected on this remastered 18 track CD which also includes brand new track Doubt. The 16 page booklet features archive images and detailed sleeve notes from Paul Trynka, Trevor Simpson, Peter Hook and Vaughan Oliver.
