“This U.K. band’s debut and only release came out in 1979 on the English label Kingsway. This is the first Christian response to the driving punk rock style of The Ramones and The Clash. Listening to this record is the audio equivalent of having gulped twenty cups of coffee. Loud, raw neurotic guitars, at a fast bratty adrenaline-pumped pace, stuttering vocals, plus all the fashionable accoutrements – leather jackets, glum looks, cryptic lettering on the lyric sheet, black and white photo of the band standing in front of a burnt building and some classic lines like “triangular powers got a hold on me,’ “I’m checkin’ out on Mr. G,” and “ain’t no God on that radio.” Cover note states “Special thanx to Jesus without whom the new wave would not be possible!” One heckuva great album! On the 2011 Born Twice Records: Legends Remastered Volume Two you can hear this legendary release in digital format for the first time, remastered by specialist J Powell of Steinhaus. Everything is packaged in a beautiful 6-panel digipak, including a band biography that is helpful for new fans! For fans of The Clash, Ramones, Altar Boys, Resurrection Band and Generation X!″ -Born Twice Records
