The name and the title of this 7″ made me believe that it was a novelty record by a non-punk band trying to cash in on the sprit of 76, but from what I’ve managed toÂ find about them on the net (which is basicly some blog comments from mr Short himself) the band was actually quite the opposite. According to him they were a real band, and the man himself is still a punk and getting ready to do his comeback this year. I guess I believe it when I see it, but it could actually be quite fun if the rumors are true. Not too many 50+ unknown punks have made their comeback this year, for better or worse. If it don’t happen we can still strut around to this record as it’s pretty damn awesome, and in my opinion both songs are equally great, and reminds me a bit of Jilted John, but tougher.
The a-side appeared on KBD #100 that I’ve never seen as far as I can remember, but it seems to have a bunch of stuff on it that I would love to hear, so feel free to rip it or upload it if you got it.
This must be the shittiest record ever released in great britain. :-(
I agree with Erich. This is real shit!
Short Cut is great while Punk Strut is totally AWESOME! Thanks for the upload Martin.
Peter, you should turn up your hearing aid…it will help you with hearing!! It is shit and you know it…hahahahaha
CanÂ´t hear you! Louder please!
This is a good one!
Pie in the face punk! Excellent!
This is fucking awesome…as long as you don’t take it very seriously
Nice post! I’ll try to post KBD#100 on 1000aspirines.com within the next few days.
I dunno Martin, you dont have to be a real punk to appreciate punk music and this is somewhat similar to the Zeppo and the Zepp Zepps single. Being released on a label (at the time) like EMI for sure means someone is waiting for a cash-in but I think this cool punk rock from the heart! On the other hand; a title like “Punk strut”….
Of course you have to be a real punk to appreciate punk music! Sluta larva dig! Now go get your hair CUT!
I think the title should have been punxtrot instead.
What do you mean? IsnÂ´t Harpo punk?
I will now quote Disneyland After Dark:
Great quote dude! DAD never had anything of importance to say…
I left it out as its obvious.
this is a great record for the time i think this was 1978 is a long long long time you now my english is very bad excuse please son 3.
Yes, we know your English is very bad…hahahaha.
Fett lÃ¤skig singel! Bought it at Waidele back in the daze for 3 kr (30 pence).
I like the cover though.
Fett? Som i tjock menar du?
fÃ¶r svenska kisar sÃ¥ Ã¤r den ute pÃ¥ tradera nu
this lasted 10 seconds after i riped it, terrable.
Any release with the line “There’s safety in numbers, there’s safety in pins” can’t be bad.
I never heard of this before, but it’s not too bad. I hope Kevin has a good comeback!
Don’t you just love band names like this? Doesn’t this vinyl start smelling bad after 30 years?
this rules, do they have anymore music around?
I am not a punk fan but can assure you that this guy does really exist, I hope he does well with his comback project…….. x
that stunt you can hear during 0:19 to 0:20 on “PuNk Strut” made our man to compile it on KBD vol.100,i guess.
Go Kevin! Great fun
I know kevin but not his privates!
(seriosly though i do :)
I know Kevin and I know his provates
Whatever! Both sides are awesomely played. Once they start they go go go. if they r still playing lets hear more more more
i wish you all luck, kevin…

It’s shit but it’s good shit.

hahahahahaha. good stuff. yeah do the punk strut. love it. lighthearted punk is cool sometimes. not gonna see that movy though. i don’t like movys unless they’re documentarys. i don’t like actors that’s all it comes down too.
I like it! I believe it is a pure punk. Excellent singing and playing. Good job Kevin! I’m looking forward to see the upcoming film.
Actually I’m a 50+ ex-punk who never made it but I haven’t had to make a comeback as I’ve never stopped performing.
Love this blog. Well done!
hello alex this was the weirdest was looking for punk stuff for lynda and found you VULCAN
reminds me of the song “im a punk” by australian dj? doug…. mulray?? great comedy punk songs
Heard the film won an award in the states – when’s it coming out over here? And when is the new music coming out?
Definitely one of THEE 3 best punk 7″s EVER released – the other two being Horrorcomic ‘I Dont Mind’ and Neville Wanker’s ‘Boys On The Dole’.
