The b-side is a good Jam/Mod influenced song that is worth a couple of spins. Action Replay is worthless junk so let’s skip that. “In 1976 the band signed to ‘Epic’ record company and in the following year released their only proffessional release Action Replay/Mass Media Meditation.

Glad you think “Action Replay” is worthless ’cause I could easily find a home for it (it’s top of the ‘to do’ list!). I know it doesn’t convince as a punk record, but it’s still pretty good. Good B-side too.

Action Replay is a great song!
