The Blocked came bursting out of the underground Welsh music scene (the same scene that gave us Manic Street Preachers, Catatonia, Stereophonics etc ...) in the early - mid 90's and soon became a cult phenomenon on the Mod scene due to their incendiary live shows. You never knew what was going to happen on stage at a Blocked gig, if the band would make it all the way through without fighting each other. One thing you could be certain of is that you were going to hear some of the tightest, toughest, angriest Mod stoke Punk stroke Power-pop in your life!
After releasing their debut "The Prisoner In Me" single on their own label, the Blocked appeared on our "Takin A Detour" compilation and then had a single in their own right on our label - the fantastic "Sloggers UK / Plastic Punks". Shortly after releasing this single, the band split, another sad story of a great band never fulfilling their potential and giving us a great album ... until now!
We are now pleased to release this, the album that never was!!! On this jaw-dropping CD are 12 tracks of pure brilliance. Tracks range from the furious Plastic Punks, Happy Families and Keep your Hands off Felicity to the pure Pop of Summer Loves You and Kid Gloves, to beautiful plaintive tracks such as Bird in a Cage and Don't Let Love Break Your Heart. If Paul Weller and Joe Strummer had formed a band, the chances are it would have sounded like the Blocked.
