FIRE EXIT -Religion Is The Biggest Cause of War CD (Detour OFFTB021)

FIRE EXIT -Religion Is The Biggest Cause of War CD (Only Fit for the Bin 006) 14 tracks, limited edition of 200.

H2D: (Mostly) new recordings of songs from the 70s onward. It's all solid, rough-edged, melodic-to-anthemic guitar-punk behind frontman Gerry Attrick's A-list hollerin' vocals (which often sound a lot like Lee Ving). 'We Hated Skool'is especially great.

Detour: Glasgow's FIRE EXIT ventured south in '78 and booked themselves into Pat Collier's Alaska Studios in Waterloo, London. An instant bond was made as being the bassist with THE VIBRATORS, Pat knew what sort of sound that FIRE EXIT was trying to achieve.
A few months later in '79, their debut release hit the streets: two self penned numbers 'TIMEWALL' backed with 'Talking 'Bout Myself' on the band's own 'Timebomb Explosions' label. It was well received and after several plays by the late great John Peel, over 2500 copies were sold in just over three weeks! The single peaked at #21 in the Alternative charts which was a real achievement from this unknown band from over the border up north. They relocated to Hounslow and quickly established themselves on the London scene.
30-odd years on and the band are still gigging - and recording - so here's their 'Best Of…' from their colourful career, anchored by frontman Gerry with original bandmate Brian Kerr who split time in Fire Exit with stints with Johnny Moped and Captain Sensible.

Tracks: Let The Show Begin / The Things People Do / Wheelchair Outa Control / Townlife / We're All Together / We Hated Skool / Glasgow Attack / Timewall / Talking Bout Myself / As Long As We're Alive / Burn The Churches / Egyptian Curse / Strangeways / Timewall (with Knox)
