Early Durban punk, captured on the Retro Fresh CD 'A Leopard Never Changes Her Spots'. Watch them playing their single, live, here.
From their 'Silence On The Radio' E.P. which surfaced out of New Orleans.
From their debut E.P. Sunderland's finest, even though Steve 'Cast Iron' Smith supports Liverpool.
Another from the 'True Life' E.P. - video for the title track here.
The debut single from these Redditch neo-dadaists. Look it up.
Another debut single, not as good as the flipside which I comped last year, but this too a gritty portrayal of life in late-'70s decaying Britain. Or Brighton, in this case.
From their debut E.P. - the third release on Small Wonder.
From their third E.P 'New Cross, New Cross'. I've only ever been to New Cross once, to see The Dwarves in the early '90s. Cracking night.
This one's from 'Raw Deal!' See it played live here.
Second single. A Who cover, but a goodie.
Sole single, the epitome of quirkiness.
Their debut effort. Not technically an E.P as the same 2 songs appeared on both sides, which did save you the trouble of flipping it.
From the Rok sampler 'Odd Bods, Mods & Sods'.
The superior flipside to third single 'Get Out Of This Town'.
Another from their debut E.P. - my first foray into record distribution. I got hold of 3 copies that year for southern mates who couldn't find it anywhere else.
The title track of their E.P.
Another track from the 'Leopard' CD. Go find it.
As is this one, as the CD features Michael Fleck's next band and some solo stuff to boot.
Another from 'New Cross, New Cross'.
And another from 'Odd Bods, Mods & Sods'.
The fastest song they ever did. From their debut E.P.
The flipside to 'I'm A Boy'.
The flipside to fourth single 'Occupied Territory'.
About the war we all feared was imminient at the time. Who knew it was all cold war posturing? Nowadays it's a different story . . .
Second single. Wasn't so keen on it at the time but it's definitely a grower.
