The Plague - X Tapes (1976
14 track coloured vinyl LP - RUBBISHLP006 - £9.00
Formed in 1976 in South London by 4 mates who were at a O’ Level College in Catford, The Plague have become one of the most talked about underground Punk acts of the time, and now we proudly present their first ever long player on our lovely ‘Bin Liner’ label.
The band gigged extensively around the London area, building up a reputation as one of the best live acts on the Punk scene. This was proven by the fact that they were given a residency at the infamous Roxy club, and went on to become the band that played there the most times, a feat in itself!!
The Plague released a single, the brilliant ‘In Love’ on the cult ‘Psycho’ label in 1978—the first pressing of 500 copies sold out quickly and the single was re-issued on the ‘Evolution’ label in a pressing of 6000 copies, which also sold like Punky hot cakes! The band released a second single, but there is some mystery surrounding this as it was thought for many years to have been withdrawn. The band deny this, but there is no explanation as to why this single is so rare.
This phenomenal LP / CD gathers together the bands entire recorded output, even including their first ever recordings made in a front room of one of the band members parents house in 1976. Featuring many previously unreleased tracks and coming in packaging that features tonnes of rare and unseen photos this is a release that you cannot afford to be without.
And a special bonus for all you vinyl freaks out there, the very limited pressing of only 500 copies comes on special vinyl—you have to see it to believe it, but it is VERY PUNK ROCK!
So don’t delay, catch The Plague today!
