    Definitely a might fine one. Time for some haggis and scotch.

    Of course it’s a matter of taste, but this ep doesn’t do much to me. “Elevator Crash” is a decent ditty, the rest is so-so. Dunno…. Sounds kinda boring and repetitive to me. Thanks for taking the time anyway. :-)

      A matter of taste for sure, and I’d say that Elevator Crash is the track that don’t really stand out on this E.P. Singing in the showers is the obvious hit, closely followed by By-products to my ears.

    What is a shower?

    Btw – people tell me always that I’m smell….

      The shower reference is certainly to the death camps. Different time and place where that sort of think was “shocking” and “cheeky” but not unthinkable for suburban lads, I guess.

        In the President Trump age, the obvious joke, however tasteless, is that you’re six million percent correct!

    Great 7″. Something about the overall tone of this record (esp. Singing in the Showers) strikes me as kind of a eulogy for punk. I can -just- hear the dust drifting down through the shafts of sunlight in the tomb.

    Steven Daly was later in Orange Juice (!!!) and even later was (is?) a writer for Vanity Fair (!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Interesting YouTube interview with James King, he of the Lonewolves, which gives some interesting background to this record, along with lots of background on the Glasgow punk scene.
