Formed: Bedfordshire, England, UK
Crappy fake punk band who debuted with the abysmal I'm All Hung Up On Pierrepoint in August 1977. Single No. 2 I Don't Mind, released a year later, is a pretty engaging stab at being a proper punk record, although the vocals border on parody. Single No. 3, Jesus Crisis, released a year after that, is now a super-rarity that fetches over £600!
They began life as Crackers, and were so irredeemably lame they entered and appeared on Opportunity Knocks. Rumours persist that the band all worked for Lightning Records, although there's no mention of this in the liner notes to the England '77 compilation, which is full of bad R&B/rock.
