A LONG OVER DUE RELEASE FROM ONE OF GLASGOW’S FINEST PUNK BANDS! ...BASICALLY THE BEST OF…. THE BANDS ROOTS CAN BE TRACED WAY BACK TO THE LATE 70S WHEN PUNK ROCK WAS EXPLODING THROUGH-OUT THE UK. LIKE THE MAJORITY OF THESE HOME GROWN BANDS, A DIY APPROACH WAS THE NORM SO THE BAND VENTURED DOWN SOUTH IN ’78 AND BOOKED THEM SELF INTO PAT COLLIER’S “ALASKA STUDIOS”, IN WATERLOO, LONDON. AN INSTANT BOND WAS MADE AS BEING THE BASSIST WITH THE VIBRATORS, PAT KNEW WHAT SORT OF SOUND THAT FIRE EXIT WAS TRYING TO ACHIEVE. A FEW MONTHS LATER IN ‘79, THEIR DEBUT RELEASE HIT THE STREETS… TWO SELF PENNED NUMBERS ‘TIMEWALL’ BACKED WITH ‘TALKING ‘BOUT MYSELF’ WAS SELF RELEASED ON THE BANDS OWN ‘TIMEBOMB EXPLOSIONS’ LABEL. IT WAS WELL RECEIVED AND AFTER SEVERAL PLAYS BY THE LATE GREAT ‘JOHN PEEL’, OVER 2500 COPIES WERE SOLD IN JUST OVER THREE WEEKS! (THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!). THE SINGLE PEAKED AT #21 IN THE ALTERNATIVE CHARTS WHICH WAS A REAL ACHIEVEMENT FROM THIS UNKNOWN BAND FROM OVER THE BORDER UP NORTH. THEY RELOCATED TO HOUNSLOW IN LONDON AND QUICKLY BECAME FAVOURITES ON THE GIG SCENE THAT WAS FLOURISHING THROUGH OUT LONDON. FAST FORWARD 30 ODD YEARS AND THE BAND ARE STILL GIGGING TODAY WITH A NEW LEASE OF LIFE! ON THIS RELEASE  YOU GET A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH A SELECTION OF TRACKS FROM THEIR EXTENSIVE BACK CATALOGUE FROM THE BANDS COLOURFUL CAREER. GERRY, THE MAIN STALWART ALONG WITH ORIGINAL BAND MATE BRIAN KERR WHO HAS FLOATED IN AND OUT OF THE BAND WHILE PLAYING STINTS WITH THE JOHNNY MOPED AND CAPTAIN SENSIBLE ARE RIGHT ON TOP OF HIS LYRICS WITH SONGS BANG UP TO DATE WITH THE ATTACKS ON GLASGOW AIRPORT TO ALL THE CONFLICTS THAT ARE HAPPENING THROUGH-OUT THE WORLD……. POLITICS > RELIGION = WAR. <<< LIMITED PRESSING OF 200 COPIES ONLY >>>
