The Vice Creems

Formed: Aylesbury Buckinghamshire, England, UK

Cute poppy punk band led by Kris Needs, editor of Zig Zag fanzine. The band on the second single apparently featured two members of The Clash (Mick Jones and Topper Headon) and two members of Generation X (Tony James and Billy Idol, the latter allegedly, on backing vocals), this lot given pseudonyms on the sleeve credits. Both singles have a yobby charm that makes each worth seeking out.
