  • Kinda underrated as for me..
  • One of my favorite bands, I used to have most of their stuff on vinyl but now only have a few things on CD - saw them live in the mid 80s and they were great!
  • Great band loved their versions of The Battle of Cable Street ( fuck fascism) and The Green Fields of France ( Lest We Forget, FGAU)
  • Been a fan since Waiting For Bonaparte. Went to Cush's 50th birthday bash in Llandeilo last year. what a fantastic night. Can't wait to see them play again. Superb, superb band
  • one of my first bands I've seen live. was the lion & unicorn tour. what a great band.
  • Saw them yesterday. Good band!
  • Saw them at their 'last' gig in 1991 at the Town and Country club. It was a good night.
  • 25th Anniversary gig rumoured for 18th May at an as yet undisclosed location.......
  • Real pity there is nothing on, they were as good as the Pogues in my mind, sadly neglected here!
  • Also possibly the only band to have a song about grave-robbing...
