Our pals over at Acute Records are releasing their (surprisingly) first ever vinyl release - "Drums Over London" by the obscuro 70's punk band, The Disco Zombies. Since we always have time for anything Acute-related I wanted to pass the news on to you...
The Disco Zombies existed from 1977 to 1980 or so (like all good punk bands!). They played extremely catchy and witty and occasionally topical pop songs, whether during their earlier energetic punk phase or later artier drum machine phase. The LP compiles their 3 rare and collectible 7" singles, including the classic "Drums Over London", as well as 7 additional never before released songs taken from acetates to singles that almost were.
If that wasn't enough…the LP comes with a download code to be able to get digital versions of all the songs, PLUS an additional 7 songs, all recorded live in 1980 including yet 5 more unreleased songs, along with covers of Eno and Faust. All of this plus a 12 page booklet…truly an embarrassment of riches.
- Here Come the Buts single listed as “favorite of their three spectacular singles” by Johan Kugelberg on his canon-defining Top 100 DIY Records for Ugly Things magazine.
- Includes 12 page booklet with liner notes from Disco Zombies singer/influential journalist Dave Henderson (Sounds/Mojo).
- Guitarist/songwriter Andy Ross discovered Blur.
- Acute Records’ first vinyl release!
