What the fuck shall I write? I’m not a reviewer. I listen to music and I play music. Reviewer is someone who listen to music and make up words that most of the time fail to describe the music or to get you and idea of how it sounds. There’s very very few times I’ve encountered a review that I’ve read then bought the record and agreed that “yeah I know what you mean”.Â
Here’s Disco Students. South Africa House is great. Kafkaesque is great. They got a sound of their own. A member later went on to play bass in Marillion. Disco Students have a website:Â http://www.discostudents.com. You click the link. It will open a new window. Click the News section to read some funny shit about a compilation they where on:Â “The portents looked promising: the album was favourably reviewed in Sounds and they were promised a review in NME. But when they went up to the NME offices with a couple of thugs hired from the Ugly Model Agency, and confronted Tony Parsons, they freaked, failed to see the funny side, and the LP was subsequently blackballed! (clearly, the Spirit of Punk was too much for the fearless NME!!).”
Label: Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Okay, worst post ever. This is Retro Garbage before it was retro. More METAL, please!
Ha ha ha :D. I’ll post some Poison for you tomorrow. Or maybe you would love some early Satanic Slaughter stuff?
Or Venom! Or some other guitar wanking, satanic bullshit…just some good old fashioned power pop!
Does this remind anyone of Cajagoogoo or Haircut 100?? Just asking.
Only if you got one cromosone too many.
Was this issued with a pic sleeve?
Not as far as I know.
Who would want a picture sleeve of disco students?? Not me.
@ Jay Thurston: ZING!
I want one. Dead or alive.
they were a good band – what happened to them?
They turned disco…
Found their ‘Best Of’ double cd in a flea market in Paris! 5 euros. Not bad – they’re still going.
I have a couple of there early singles. One of those bands like PragVec and Delta5 – Rough Trade style stuff.Not real punk.
Delta 5??? Oh lord! I haven’t heard that name in years…
Peel used to play Disco Students stuff – remember listening to them when i was at college cos they were from Aylesbury.
They are on the Rough Trade comp so they are alive.
Ah, South Africa House – great single.
LIKE “DELTA 5” NOT A CHANCE- DELTA 5 SMASH THEM INTO A TIN CAN – JUST LISTEN TO “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS”
The B side is better , “Kafkaesque”
I concur, sir.
