Crap teen punk band formed by my friend Ian Plenderleith and me in late 1978. Originally we had no instruments. These songs are taken from two or three different sessions in early to mid-1980. Some are recorded on my dad’s Hitachi hi-fi using stereo mics. On ‘Batchy’ we used Plendy’s Bontempi air organ (and probably recorded it in his mum’s dining room).
