Well here it is, the NINETH in the series of these very collectable '79 Classic Mod releases.
Now this release will sell out before it is even back from the pressing plant as the band STILL have a massive fanbase which we have seen with our own eyes at their 2018 re-union gig! So you have been warned!
This debut single release by Doncaster's finest the Gents, it is now 40 years since the original release in the wake of the Gents' triumphant triumph in the EMI Joshua Tetley Supergroup competition.
Having won equipment, recording time at Abbey Road and a one-single deal, the band preferred to take their time and do the single themselves back up north and this is the product, the double A-sided The Faker and cunningly punned Le Pink Pantser.
The single was originally pressed as 1000 and these sold out at gigs in record time and although they do come up on eBay about once a year or 18 months or so, they are renowned for selling for between fifty and a hundred quid. One of the rare Gents' items. All artwork by Mr. Simon Curtis.
