Electro Hippies - The Only Good Punk

The UK hardcore scene blasted out of some very unlikely provincial places but if I'd been born that unlucky, I'd have been royally fucked off as well. This is their first LP, some compilation tracks and the "Live" LP. It finishes with a version of Silver Machine where they get a member of the audience to get on stage and sing the words with the irresistable cajole of "c'mon you puff". Happier times.

This was released on vinyl in 1988 but didn't get a digital reissue until this (lossless rip of the) CD on Peaceville in 2002.

Sorry for objecting, but there was indeed a digital re-release
back in '89, it was titled "The Peaceville Recordings" and contained exactly the same material.

you're not objecting, just imparting knowledge
i should know better given that I posted The Peaceville Recordings a few years ago

Ah, what a band, in the late eighties only Sore Throat and Doom and No Means No meant much to me punk rock wise.
Must have seen them at least a dozen times at the 1 in 12 Club in Bradford.
I did like their acid Scouse vibes.
Only comparable band from the mid eighties were Mansfield's Scum Dribblerz (probably got the spelling wrong but they were doing one minute songs before it was "cool" and there was just two of them, drums and guitar!
I'm sure if someone unearths a tape they will garner huge kudos points from the cool kids (they are probably huge in Japan already).
