Play Dead were an English goth rock group from Oxford that grew out of the fading English punk scene in 1980. Though the band was identified with groups like UK Decay and Sex Gang Children, the band felt they didn't belong under the "Gothic" title. The band made three studio albums for four different small labels - Fresh Records, Jungle Records, Situation 2, and Clay Records - before forming their own label, "Tanz", for their final album, Company Of Justice, which appeared in 1985.

Total plays on over the last 6 months
    Two eyes meet the pull is very strong
    The persons dream, it's running on and on
    The tenant views a mind to let
    With small diversions that could be sooner said
    Solely appearing, the person that you're soon to know
