Additional Notes

Liner notes: This is a selection of songs taken from the many demo tapes we have received over the past few months. The material is a good cross section of what new Punk & Skin bands are doing up and down the country. We think these new bands deserve to be heard. OK some of them may not be the greatest but at least their efforts have been rewarded on vinyl and hopefully it will give encouragement to those of you that have recently started a band. Finally if you have paid more than £2.25 for this 12" E.P. take it back to the place where you bought it from, get your money back and tell them to stuff it. Post £2.25 to us at the address below and we'll send you one.

Reissued on CD as a twofer: A Country Fit For Heroes - Volumes 1 & 2.
