Their fourth single. They were almost becoming sensible at this point so they split.
One from their first E.P. Side two is much the better side.
One of two singles they bashed out in 1978.
From 'The Legendary Sick Things' E.P. which was recorded in '77, however, the collapse of Raw Records meant that it didn't get a release until '83.
The flipside of 'Treat Me Like A Doll' - their sole release.
This one's from 'Rien N'a Changé' - a 7-track split E.P. with Vatican. Their first vinyl.
The Crabs didn't have any vinyl of their own, but good old John recorded them anyway. 'Tis a crime that it didn't lead to anything more than a short career as the backing band for Gary Holton.
From the superior flipside of 'Aleister Crowley'. Read more at Bored Teenagers.
Their sole single. If you go back to Bored Teenagers there's a couple of funny anecdotes.
Their high point from the 'Rien N'a Changé' E.P. which translates as 'Not a Catholic Trip'.
This is not a 'catholic trip' either. From the solo E.P. he bashed out after Tanz Der Youth folded.
Sole single from this short-lived band which had Twink on vocals and Alan Lee Shaw on guitar who quickly went on to form the Maniacs later that year.
The stand-out track from 'Some New Ruins - The Yale-New Haven Compilation' LP.
From their 'Greatest Hits' E.P. which, you guessed it, was their sole release. Love the farmyard sleeve.
The other track from the flipside of 'No Town Hall'. Very poignant.
Nothing poignant about the 'Pretty Paedophiles' E.P. of which this was the opening track.
The other song on the flipside of 'Aleister Crowley'.
From their other 1978 single.
From Clive 'Cosmic' Culbertson - mystic, musician and healer. First solo single, which got a quick repress on Logo.
From the 'Deadbeat Revival' E.P. - their sole release. Lo-Fi punk at it's best or worst. You choose.
The flipside of 'I Am The Bishop'. The last thing they recorded for over 20 years before the Railway Workers Reunion E.P.
Another track from the solo E.P.
And another from the Peel session.
Not a real band but a one-off Oi! project with mildly amusing lyrics.
Second single. About Joyce McKinney. A quick 'net search will reveal all about her sorry, sordid story.
