Rating: **** (Recommended)
Released January 1978
The only album by this no-talent UK punk outfit, a few weaker cuts, but plenty of great ones, mostly originals but some sped up V.U. and a transformation of “Eighteen” (Alice Cooper Group), this version called “15,” which maybe points out the age of these punks.  This band helped remind London what rock ‘n roll was supposed to be about in the first place, kids doing the best they can with little talent and a lot of heart, crappy guitars and a few chords.  

Great stuff, worthwhile grab for fans of punk.
