What the hell where they thinking with the last track? Anyway, Cybernetic Energy is a sharp short blaster. The other two come in close behind. You can almost hear it’s recorded at Spaceward. I would’ve expected a little rawer sound though. According to an info sheet that was included with their second 7inch they where close to secure a deal with Raw Records but it never happened. Behind the drums no other then the former School Girl Bitch man Paul M Milek is banging the skin.

This is really good! Fanx
Awesome! This is exactly what 77 Punk should sound like!
If this single had more distortion on the guitar and a rawer attack it would really be up there, however overall, an essential seventies punk 45 for every collection, thank you keep this quality coming
Wow, just awful. Not even that – MEDIOCRE! Where Is The New Wave – only thing goin’ for it is the very short geetar solo. …and that ain’t even so good. If I wanted shit songs condemning shit wave I’d plug into Sports or Elvis Costello or some other godawful sound.
u ass fucker. this is one of the best punk rock EP’s ever made. Ur a fucking piece of shit!
Ha ha Collin you need to update your taste.
I gotta say I agree with Collin, definitely listenable once, maybe twice, but never, ever again.
THANKS! THIS ROCKS!!!
I’m a big fan of all things Spaceward. Yeah, it’s not as “raw” as say, The Killjoys, but fuck it, still a rocker!
Great record– “Where’s the new wave” has been a mixed tape staple since it appeared on a Back to Front LP circa ’94, so I’m very happy to hear the rest of the EP. Thanks!
‘What the hell where they thinking with the last track?’ …well, obviously they were thinking ‘let’s record something pleasant that our Mother’s will like’ and then towards the end thought ‘fuck it, I hope mum’s a Lurkers fan!’.
My mum liked “New Guitar In Town” by the way.
I picked this up years ago,and my first thoughts was Lurkers,which is no bad thing seeing how many bands wanted to be the Clash..
I never thought I’d ever hear this again. I’ve got rid of my turntable now but still have this on single. I paid 10p for this in a second-hand record shop in West London back in 79. You have just made an old man very happy : – )
The bass player/songwriter/backing vocals on this is 45 is Ian D he still plays and still is into the music scene here in NW Britain,the 2nd single is great punky powerpop “your to blame” both on Rockaway their own label
Just found this single for the equivalent of 50 pence in a Japanese record store
Months on I still love “I Can’t Help It.”
Does that make me gay?
