I guess many of you recognize the song “Mucky pup” from the 1st LP by Exploited but I hope you agree that nothing beats the original! This is the first release on The Small Wonder label.
Label: Small wonder
You canÂ´t rockÂ´nÂ´roll
I think someone sent me a compilation tape they did for me many moons ago with this song. It’s pure genius, fantastic. However, it’s a shame that you didn’t post the other side as this is the only song I’ve heard of by The Puncture.
this is a great record… one of my faves, and one of englands finest obscure 45s. pogel, the b side is killer too, just go buy one!
Any chance of getting the B-side posted? I’ve loved this song ever since I heard it on KBD #14. I also had no idea that the Exploited covered “mucky pup” up until about a year ago (seeing as I never cared for them, not a bad cover though). I can’t possibly afford an original copy on record store monkey salary, so pretty please?
If you are looking for a copy of ‘Can’t play rock ‘n roll in a council flat’, Cherry Red records has it on Small Wonder Punk Singles Collection Volume 2 CDPUNK70. It’s out of stock on the Cherry Red website, but you can probably find it on gemm.com or amazon
Thanks For the tip, but I’ve been unsuccesful tracking it down so far just like their “Punk Rock Rarities Vol. 2” CD. I’ll keep trying though….
Hi killedbycandis, and anyone else who’s interested, you can download “you can’t rock n roll” from here http://www.tunetribe.com/ It costs 86p. I had this record in the late 70’s, and lost it in the mists of time, as you do. So glad I’ve got it again – these two songs are excellent. Hope this helps you guys.
B SIDE MOTHER FUCKER B SIDE!
B-side sounds like a bunch of high school losers attempting to imitate a PINK FAIRIES song. in other words, ITS FREAKING INCREDIBLE!!!
Oi anyone know where I can collect some royalties?

hi just wondered did you ever record any other demos would love to hear them
Great Song. I am lucky enough to work with one of the band by the way. I would love to hear the b-side some time.

Jo punk var bra pÃ¥ slutet till bÃ¶rjan av 80talet. FrÃ¥n 1984 och famÃ¥t har det dalat rÃ¤tt rejÃ¤lt speciellt i Bilbao och San Sebastian.
Hoppla hoppla “…slutet av 70 till bÃ¶rjan av 80talet.” ska det vara.

I always get a kick out of playing this song on Killed By Death #14 for people I know who like the Exploited. There is always a look of bewilderment for some strange reason.
Astonishing that those idiots in the Exploited realized this was so great. Great lyrics, keyboards that are different but as cool as the Screamers, and it’s catchy! Fucking punk.
