Jesus Christ, this one was a funny one to scan (especially since I recently realized that my scanner won’t work the way I want it to)! Took about an hour on my incredibly slow and shitty scanner to get all the pages in this massive fold-out sleeve into a digital format. According to Discogs it was only pressed in 300 copies, but I’ve seen it in Sweden a couple of times, so I think there were more copies, unless someone reissued it, which I doubt.
Prejudice as I am, IÂ Â never thought punk caught on in Africa, but South Africa had a bunch of bands in the late 70’s/ early 80’s with Power Age being the most well known I guess. My favourites were Wild Youth (from Durban), but I’ve never managed to put my hands on their lone 7″ or the compilation Six of the best, so I’ll let you enjoy this UK-flavoured apolitical slab of slaughter instead. As a matter of fact they remind me a bit of Hornsey At War that I posted here some years ago.
Oh yeah, the SA in the band name stood for South Africa of course, and was added after the UK blokes with the same name threatened to sue them for aping their name. Punks suing punks from day one I assume!
