DRUG SQUAD - Perversion Street CD (Detour OFFTB 014) First-rate '77-79 metalpunk/thugpunk

DRUG SQUAD - Perversion Street CD (Detour OFFTB 014)

H2D: Pink Fairies fans doing (lots and lots of) first-rate metalpunk/thugpunk. Their song 'Switchcleaner' is an all-time classic (though the mastering from the 45 is inexplicably horrid…)

Detour - Long Haired Punks present us with a true unreleased and long lost album from the golden era of PUNK ROCK!! The real sound of the suburbs...not forgetting the inner cities. The perfect coming together of '60's optimism and '70's realism & it rocks like a mutha! More powerful than the Punk Rock bands of the time & more humorous than the Heavy Metallers! With a change of name & proper management they could have gone on to be a cult band to end them all! The best 'lost album' of the punk era that has been saved from the bin!
OK, The tracks may be raw but they are packed with venom. The singer, 'Geoff Eade' may of not been a conformist with the Punk ideology of the dress code BUT his attitude and being totally pissed-off with the world gave him the conviction to be the front man of this outstanding and well over looked Punk Band from South West London. Sadly when the band split, Geoff's music career ended there! I suppose he said that was all to say in one foul sweep!
17 track release features both sides of the bands one and only single and 15 UNRELEASED TRACKS! The bands debut release was recorded for Lee Woods' Raw label. Unfortunately it never happened! All tracks recorded between 1977 - 1979.

Limited pressing of only 200 copies: 17 tracks, $13
