Help needed – Mystery track

Hi everyone, many years ago a friend of mine did a compilation for me but never gave me any info on who the artists were. Over the years I’ve managed to figure them all out, but with one exception. And this last one has haunted me since back then. I’ve sent it to quite a lot of people who know their UK punk history, but without any luck. To me it sounds like a British band, but so far the best result I’ve recieved is Chuck H2D who said it sounded slightly familiar. Apart from that, nothing! The rest of the 10-15 collectors I’ve sent it to gave the same answer basically; never heard it before. It’s clearly a vinyl rip and it’s an amazing track! Very DIY, very primitive but obviously not a huge hit…
As everything else on the comp was from the UK (Devils Hole Gang, Scabs, Girls At Our Best, Desperate Bicycles, Au Pairs, The Arnold, Two-fingered Approach, Toys, Scissor Fits etc) I’ve always assumed that this band was as well, but I really don’t know. I can’t even figure out a single word of the lyrics, or even what language it is…

Any help on who it might be or any leads what so ever are more than welcome as it’s been haunting me for at least 1o years now. And before you ask, yes, I’ve asked the guy who did the comp numerous times, but his memory is sketchy at best so no luck there either.

    Believe it or not, but I just managed to figure out who it is!!! Just out of luck on youtube! What are the fucking odds.

    So what is it then? This has been annoying me since I heard it.

    Would also love to know who it is – sounds Manchester/Buzzcocks-y. Wasn’t really a fan of it though.

    Oh, all credits to Bruce over at My life’s a jigsaw who I for unknown reasons didn’t ask until I posted it here, but who actually knew what it was as well. All hail the king!
