    I’d love to have five funboys here. Peter, Martin, Analowl, Jay and Peter J, the Hardcore expert. That’d be nice.

  3. What a master piece! I thank myself with abig hug for such a killer post. Well done, myself!

  4. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    I wanna hug you for posting this masterpiece Martin.

  5. Jay Thurston says:

    Not a bad record!!!!

    • Martin says:

      You got that right Jay. In fact, it’s a KILLER!

      • Jay Thurston says:

        When did they kick out two members and become Funboy 3???

        • Martin says:

          Why don’t you ask the Specials that question Jay?
          Just co-incidents, but this is taken from the website that I linked to in the post;
          About a year after the Funboy Five left the world, the Fun Boy Three emerged, composed of ex-members of The Specials. The similarity in name was, as far as we know, coincidence although when the FB3 began using some of the same song titles (for quite different songs) as the Funboy Five, the coincidence became even greater.

          No less a coincidence was the fact that Mick Sinclair reviewed the Fun Boy Three’s first gig.

  9. Scott says:

    Gotta admit this is a pretty impressive record — proof positive that you can’t judge a single by it’s jacket.

  10. Johan says:

    “Thanks for ordering the funboy five single! It will be on its way to you tomorrow.” Sweet!

  11. Here is a kind of life after death you can be sure of…

  14. Josh says:

    How many sleeve colors were there for this 7″? I’ve got an Orange one. Is there more than Orange and Blue?

    • Martin says:

      I think there are 5 different color variations on this sleeve, orange, pink, blue, yellow and green. However, I think the yellow and orange sleeve might be the same ones so the proper number might just as well be 4 variations. Then there’s an alternative sleeve with Compulsive Eater as a-side. The way I understood it it’s from the same pressing, but the band (or someone else?) tried to re-launch it in a new sleeve and with the b-side as the a-side by putting stickers on the labels to alternate them. I’ve never seen a physical copy of the alternative sleeve though, but it’s a picture of it on discogs. And to add some mystery to the alternative sleeve, there’s no info about it on the bands own site so if it’s actually done by the band or a later scam by a fan… who knows.
