Threats started of life in 1977 as the Reflectors. Just 4 local lads from Dalkeith in Midlothian Scotland who had a collective interest in Music… Jim and Gogsy were next door neighbours from when they were born and grew up together. Early memories were a great interest in all things guitar based. The bands that they grew up with were the glam bands of the 1970’s. It was all based on rock n’ roll with bags o’ fun thrown in for good measure. (That rings a bell). Slade, T-Rex, Sweet, Mud, you get the picture.

Then there was an almighty bang in 1977. Enter PUNK ROCK. The appeal was instant and immediately the need to play music was stronger than ever.

After a few gigs round and about Edinburgh the band were signed by Playlist Records

Gigs with Exploited and tour with Anti Pasti led to the band being signed with Rondelet Records

The first release for Rondelet Records was the Go to Hell EP. (1981). The success of the EP resulted in the band playing with UK Subs, Dead Kennedys, Anti-Nowhere League and Chelsea.

By this time Threats were firmly part of the UK Punk establishment and were touring in their own right. In 1982 Threats were again back in the studio recording the 6 track EP Politicians and Ministers. By this time the song writing had improved and songs had evolved a definite Threats style. By 1983, the UK punk scene was dying and the Threats decided to take a rest.
