First release from the infamous Good Vibrations records out of Ireland. Big Time is the obvious hit but I must say it gets annoying after some spins. Not so with No.1. No. 1 got more bite and snottyness to it. How come most irish bands had such a talent for writing hooky and melodic punk? We got Stiff Little Fingers, Clive Culbertson, Undertones, The Starjets, insert any other band here and Rudi. Their later stuff ain’t that interesting to me except Overcome By Fumes from the Battle Of The Bands comp. 7inch.

Theres a radio sessions CD, that came out 2 years ago in japan wich is brilliant! also check out 4 singles and one album Last Years Youth Records did a few years ago with unreleased and great stuff!!
ALSO check out Shame Academy: â€œPunk Rock for Dummiesâ€ CD on Combat Rock, France. Its Brian from RUDI, Greg from THE OUTCASTS and Petesy from STALAG 17 doing new recorded Hits from RUDI and OUTCASTS!!
A really great CD with all the hits!!!!
Cheers to Belfast
This one is THE best PUNK 7″ ever from N.Ireland !!
… but “Time To Proud” is the real one from RUDI. Killer!
Cheers to ULSTER from Brittany
This was one of the the first punk 7″ I bought. Frankly, I bought it because of the cover (like early Misfits records – I was born a horror fan). Haven’t played this in AGES because I somehow got tired of it real quick (as Peter said).
I agree. “No. 1” is easily the better track.
Holy shit! I’ve never had much interest this band (“Big Time” was the only thing I’d heard of theirs), but “No. 1” is a totally different sound, this is great!
I agree with Von Erich this is an excellent record. I’d only seen their name listed way back when but had never heard their music. Many Thanks!
the Undertones + Shame Academy @ Spring & Airbrake, Ulster.
This is a great record and I love all their other 7″s too.
Made my day, made my week, made my year to download this! Legendary stuff. Have the 7″ single, have most of the Good Vibrations stuff. Now I’ve got this on my iPod, will always make me smile. Happy memories, happy days.
One of the best punk songs.
yeah its great punk band i remember the time when we was young.thank you kbd.
