Manicured Noise-The IDOTNW "Bikini" Mystery.. 24 January 11

In a short entry in the very informative (and now highly collectable) "International Discography Of The New Wave 1982/83 " ( B George and Martha Defoe) it's suggested that CTR compilation stars Manicured  Noises' first single was "Bikini World". Now, as any late Seventies/early Eighties Post-Punk obsessive will tell you, this is simply not the case. The Bikini 7" was dropped in favour of Metronome as the first M Noise release. Indeed, in the book it also states that "Bikini" was the very first PRE release. Simply not true. Or, does anyone out there know better...?
