when he comes to ring your bell

BEG 1.

For the uninitiated, The Lurkers were the UK's visceral answer to the Ramones, formed in Uxbridge, West London in 1976. This was the first ever release on the legendary Beggars Banquet label. Mine is on blue vinyl, and hey; who would have thought that the sentiment which prompted me to buy this then would continue to resonate with the same neanderthal inarticulacy more than thirty years later ?

I am
the product of arrested development. An unimal.

Pete Stride: vocals; Howard Wall: guitar;
Manic Esso: drums; Arturo Bassick: bass.
Recorded at Magrite Studios Management.

THE LURKERS: SHADOW from "Shadow b/w Love Story" 45 (Beggars Banquet) 1977 (UK)
