The Limit – Please Please Me 7″

limit_please_cover.jpgAn awesome punked up version of some old 60’s classic. The b-side is their own number and is a great tune too but dosen’t beat the cover. But who where The Limit? I’ve heard rumours they’ve later became The Dark. My World At Night is composed by Barron Rocca and both tracks is produced by John Springate if this is some help for anybody to give me more info on this mystery release. I’ve seen this record twice and I don’t know if it was properly released?

    Dennis Perdicou from The Limit went on to be in The Dark, but I think he might’ve been the only one. Both sides of this single are great!

    Yeah this is a keeper. Know anything about quantity pressed?

  3. steve says:

    No idea about quantity pressed. With majors, you can never really tell. I’ve only ever seen big-A demos… anyone seen ‘stock’ copies? (There’s also acetates floating around from when the band was called The Freebies, before they changed to The Limit. Ooh, I’d like one of those.)

    Probably not much help but John Springate – or someone else by that name – was in the Glitter Band – Gary Glitter’s backing band.

    My copy of this single is a stock copy. Many years ago I remember seeing an ebay lot auction of records and acetates from Springate’s studio… did anyone win it? Did he work on any other punk productions?

    Wow…..great Beatles ever punk Beatles cover?

  7. I had a recording studio in central london recording lots of demos for punk bands The limit where a local band I got to know and they suggested the idea of remaking Please Please me. The single was released through private stock records but never really did anything.
    Ray Bermiston later reformed the band and they became the passion puppets and where signed to MCA. Hope this helps!

    Hi John!
    Thanks for sharing the story. Have you saved all the recordings you’ve made?

    • Unfortunately I only have a few bits of vinyl knocking about from over the years-most of my more recent productions all appeared on CD however I do have a copy of “Please please me” but unfortunately no record player to play it on…!

    I normally hate punk covers of the Beatles but this is SO good. Definitely the best I’ve heard — better than Seventeen’s attempt. Sped up just enough. I will try to look for this one
