"ONLY FIT FOR THE BIN" WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT …. YES…. THE PITIFUL… THE MYSTERY BAND THAT HAS GONE DOWN IN PUNK FOLKLORE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE LEGENDARY ‘FAREWELL TO THE ROXY’ ALBUM BUT NEVER WAS!! THE STORY GOES THAT THE BAND PLAYED SO BADLY ON THE NIGHT THAT THE ALBUM WAS RECORDED THAT ‘LIGHTNING RECORDS’ DECIDED TO DROP THE BAND AND GIVE ‘THE UK SUBS’ & ‘THE BEARS’ AN EXTRA TRACK EACH. THIS WAS THE STORY BEHIND WHY THEY WEREN’T INCLUDED IN THE ALBUM AND WAS BANDED ABOUT FOR 30 ODD YEARS UNTIL ONE OF THE BAND MEMBERS WAS LOCATED AND APPEARED ON THE ‘PUNK ‘77 WEBSITE’. WHEN MARK TATE WAS INTERVIEWED FOR THIS WEB SITE, HIS STORY WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT TO WHAT HAD BEEN SAID BEFORE. HIS VERSION WAS THAT THE BAND WERE ON FINE FORM BUT FELT THAT THE SOUND ENGINEERS WASN’T DOING HIS JOB PROPERLY AND AN ARGUMENT ERUPTED AND ONE OF THE BAND MEMBERS (NO NAME MENTIONED) LOBBED ONE OF HIS DRUM STICK AT THE SOUND ENGINEER WHILE THEY WERE ON STAGE AND SUBSEQUENTLY THE RECORDINGS WERE MUCKED UP (ON PURPOSE?) LEAVING NO TRACKS TO APPEAR AND THE REST HIS HISTORY!  SO HERE WE ARE, SOME 35 YEARS ON AND THE PITIFUL FINALLY SEE THEIR LONG LOST TRACKS FINALLY RELEASED SO THAT EVERYONE CAN JUDGE FOR THEMSELVES. THE FIRST THREE TRACKS ARE ACTUALLY STUDIO TRACKS THAT WERE RECORDED IN LATE 1977. THE ACTUAL MASTER TAPES ARE LONG GONE SO THESE TRACKS HAVE BEEN RE-MASTERED FROM A DUSTY OLD CASSETTE TAPE THAT WAS FOUND AT A BACK OF AN OLD DRAW. NEXT UP IS TWO OLD LIVE RECORDINGS WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THE PITIFUL IN THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT.  THIS PRESS RELEASE WILL BE A BIT DIFFERENT TO MOST PRESS RELEASES AS WE WON’T GO ON ABOUT HOW GREAT THESE TRACKS ARE OR THAT THEY ARE LONG LOST GEMS ETC. THESE RECORDINGS ARE ROUGH AND READY, VERY CHAOTIC AND EVEN SHAMBOLIC IN PLACES. THIS IS PUNK ROCK AT GRASS ROOT LEVEL, FOUR TEENAGERS WITH NO PAST MUSICAL EXPERIENCE THAT WERE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND THE RIGHT TIME!  THE LIVE RECORDINGS ACTUALLY FEATURES TWO EX MEMBERS OF THE 101ERS, ‘MOLE’ AND ‘RICHARD DUDANSKI’ WHO WOULD EVENTUALLY END UP PLAYING DRUMS ON ‘PUBLIC IMAGE LTD’ DEBUT ALBUM. THESE RECORDINGS ARE A PIECE OF PUNK ROCK HISTORY!!!
