London PX – Orders E.P. 7″


Northern Londoners who formed in late 1979 under the influence of the mod scene as well as Gen X, Buzzcocks etc, but according to themselves they never managed to be “good” enough to be a mod band, so they decieded that punk was the thing for them. After recruiting local Mensi impersonator Cliff Hanger the band was ready to take the world by storm… or maybe not if you ask Gary Bushell who called this EP the worst Oi! record ever! Guess that makes this the second Oi! record posted here after the Introze magnificent 7″ Kids In Uniform. I’d rather call this rama-lama-shitty-shitty-bang-bang-punk, but if you wanna insult the band by calling it Oi!, just go ahead.

If anyone’s got a copy of their tape release for sale, or MP3’s for that matter, let me know and I’ll post their flexi 7″ as a thank you.

    Worst Oi! band ever? OK, it was bad, but The Beardsmen still take that prize for me.

    Orders was good but take a listen to their other single “Arnold Layne” (yes, the Pink Floyd song). It’s a real corker….better even than Dave Gilmour & David Bowie’s recent version. I saw PX play live at Rebellion in 2008…they played Orders but unfortunately not Arnold Layne. I heard they don’t play often (something like just 20 gigs in 32 years)

    I woke up with a lot of anxiety, couldn’t find health care documents that cover my non-existent but expensive ailments. Felt bad about Norway. Sparked up a bowl (or vaporizer, as we do these days). Listened to Orders, pretty good and sloppy. But then got lost in my better half’s records. “Relics” brought me to a better London PX place, like Sun Ra or the Raped Teenagers. I hate my parents more than they hate me.

    I hate Mcs (micks) and my wife, too, and used condom-chewing Swedes, but I applaud the celt who wrote “I will give you everything”–even if Them are Muslims.

    This one is an all-time classic in my book. Totally unique sound that never tires. It definitely isn’t Oi! music but the key influences appear to be the same.

    A while ago I found another copy of this one, but with a different sleeve with the Beatles on it. According to various sources on the interweb, the first 900-950 copies came with the sleeve posted here, and the rest with the Beatles sleeve.

    I put up this copy for sale at Discogs, in case someone’s looking for it; http://www.discogs.com/seller/martin_gbg
    Got more stuff there as well, including the Jetz, Hornsey at war, Xtraverts, Dagen D etc.
    I need some dough…
