Arguably Otway's strongest single in many a year and possibly the most "pop" to date. Mass Communication was released in April 1983 once again on Maurice Bacon's Empire Records. Being on a small independent label was always going to make it difficult for Otway to trouble the charts and Otway had begun to think of creative ways in which to get signed by another major. Otway was getting used to the word "flop" by now.
