During the first Damned haitus in 1978 Rat Scabies played in the White Cats who didn't release any vinyl but they did record a couple of cracking Peel sessions.
From the classic 'Punk rock Christmas' E.P.
Sole single. From Whitstable, Kent.
Of all the bands named the Dogs that I know of, these were the only ones that utlised a synth. One of two singles they released in '81.
From the flipside of 'I Wanna Kill My Mom' - an all-time classic.
An ultra-rarity. Why, you ask? You know who can tell you.
From their sole 4-tracker.
A bit of post-punk for you now - the first of three singles.
Another track from their sole E.P.
Sole release - from Middlesbrough.
One from the flipside of 'Northern Ripper'.
Another from the 'Ward And June . . .' E.P.
Sole single from this scarf-wearing London-based band who later morphed into London Zoo.
Another from the 'Go Buckskin' E.P.
Second single - much more accessible than some of their other stuff. A John Peel favourite. From Edinburgh.
Another White Cats goodie.
From their debut 'Don't Tax Me' E.P. An early Glaswegian effort.
The other side of their ultra-rare 7".
The flipside of 'Easy'.
