THIS IS THE FIRST PRESSING OF 250 COPIES ON BLACK VINYL.
Formed in 1980 in Southsea, Hants Acid Attack have proved to be legends of the Punk Scene of the early '80s and the subject of much interest.
Two stand out tracks are presented here, totally re-mastered, on the bands first 7" vinyl courtesy of LOVE CHILD RECORDS; "Suburbia's Dream" c/w "Warsaw"
Acid Attack were originally in existence for four years in which time they released the 13 track cassette album “Sulphuric” and contributed the track “Suburbia's Dream” to the Sane Records 1984 compilation LP “On the Street”.
In terms of era, they fit into what is now known as the UK82 punk scene but they think the sound is not so easy to categorise. They were neither Oi or hardcore punk. Acid Attack aimed beyond such restricting labels. Gigging mainly locally, aside from one headline slot in South Wales, the name Acid Attack spread far and wide thanks to word of mouth, sales of Sulphuric (aided greatly by the practice of smearing postage stamps with soap in order to reuse them) and interviews in many of the punk fanzines of the time. Sulphuric also received a short but favourable review in the music paper Sounds, who noted that “Acid Attack are a spirited punk band with sufficient ideas and energy to lift them above the morass of thrash-and-screech merchants”.
Acid Attack formed in late 1980, went through numerous line up changes and had split up by the end of 1984.
They are still out and about now - plying the same in yer face 82Punk with the same enthusiasm as over 35 years ago.
