Girl Guided Missiles – Desperate Men 7″


Another UK 7″ you say? Yes of course I’d say, and this time it’s one that I think is new to a lot of people concidering it’s really hard to track down, never been comped and it’s not on youtube (yet, even though that might change after this post). And it’s a great record, so why it never appeared on any of of the Bloodstains, KBD, BTF etc series is beyond me. But then I could say the same thing about Nicky Beat & the Beatniks and numerous other bands in the posting queue. On the other hand I think that means that there are still enough great and uncomped records from the UK to fill a few more series if anyone wanna pick up the torch again.
And I’m still waiting for someone to do the first Japanese KBD comp! There has been a few hardcore ones, and then there’s the Gozira label comp, but I’m still waiting for for a classic Killed by death comp of obscure Japanese punk bands.
And I’m also waiting for a Bloodstains across Eastern Europe! Come on, someone whould know enough about that scene do put together a more than decent compilation.

If fyou couldn’t tell that already I don’t really know that much about this band…

    Really brilliant record, at 5 minutes songs I am usually skeptical but they groove both.

    Whoa! I’m finally done listening to all the posts. What to say about this one? The old school Rock vibe is pretty consistent, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing (just think of early Gizmos or Th’Cigaretz…). Not bad overall. The flip is a bit better, IMO. Thanks for all the great vintage music, pals. :-)

    This is very obscure! Never seen this 7″ on Discogs or ebay, very obscure and great stuff! As said as a post above it’s very strange that this band isn’t featured on any KBD/Bloodstains/etc… comps too!

  4. Posers are rebels without causes, IDIOT SAVANTES. PUNK. Poseurs take PUNK records too seriously because theyre activist morons and diaper punks.

    I have this single, I purchased it because Steve Franklin was a friend in my childhood years back in Studley.
