Teen Punks From Christchurch

My friend Michael Banks and I recorded this tape on my mum's Sanyo tapedeck back in 1992 when we were sixteen.It was a cold afternoon on a Friday at the end of the first term.My mum and her friend were in the kitchen listening(amusedly!) while we were jamming in the lounge on my sister's drumkit and my buddy David Beans Vester guitar with Peavy practice amp.Mike broke a string and I only had one drumbeat as I was "fresh".The lyrics were improvised by Michael and were about molesters,murderers and monsters which was our bread and butter at school rather than learning.Sod Cock was a character that Mike came up with(his artwork is on the cover) who was a punk rock sadist with vomit and violence emanating eternally without remorse!
