Puncture, Islington, London

Formed: Islington, London, England, UK

Early band whose Mucky Pup was notable for being the first release on Small Wonder, setting the label off on its course of quirky, slightly left-of-centre punk with this, well, quirky, slightly left-of-centre punk rock tune. It was later covered by The Exploited. A fabulously catchy single that lurches along speedily and benefits from a particularly insane synthesiser and hilarious yobbo vocals.

Anyway, the lyrics to 'Mucky Pup':

I pick my nose and I eat it up
I'm a real humdinger
I'm a mucky pup

I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup
I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup I'm a mucky pup

I don't take drugs, I've given glue up
But I sniff people
I'm a mucky pup

I see pretty girls and I hitch it up
Then the nipples go point-point
I'm a mucky pup

The nine o clock news is something to trip on
I bleedin' love her
