FlyinÂ´ spiderz from Holland did release a couple of early punkrock-records! To me they sound like a mix of rock and punk, but all those genres just fucks your head up, so just letÂ´s say itÂ´s good. I have another 7″ a 2 LPs (1977-1978) on which you can find some really great punksongs and some boring rocksongs as well, but If you can find them in the used bin for a fair price theyÂ´re worth buying.
I think this is their first vinyl, but IÂ´m not sure…
Actually there was a record before this one (“Down”/ “Let’s Take The Chance”), but that was never released; a number of picture sleeves are circulating tho’. I saw the Flyin’ Spiderz on a kiddie TV show when I was about 10 years old; I remember thinking it was a bunch of horrible noise. Funny, because they were surely one of the slickest punk bands around. Their 2 LP’s are not too hard to find secondhand; both contain a couple of pretty good songs each. Avoid their later noo-wave records (under the moniker “Spiderz”). I found a Dutch web page that has a snippet of a 1978 live show that sounds pretty wild (home.planet.nl/~bruns024/flyinspiderz.html), but alas, it’s only about a minute long (I guess that guy is selling CDRs or something).
Both LP:s have such great front covers. Especially the first one.
The ULTIMATE single by Spiderz is “Movies” (1977). It can be found on the EMI comp. “Meet the new `punkÂ´ wave” 1978. If one doesnÂ´t mind punk played by real musicians
Great stuff. The singer sounds British, though.
He’s singing “I’m a sissy boy”, no doubts about it.
