RE-ISSUE OF THE CLASSIC DEBUT SINGLE FROM 1977 BY THE KILLJOYS
LIMITED PICTURE DISC – 1000 COPIES ONLY
The Killjoys were one of the finest punk bands thrown up in the UK 1977 explosion. Energetic, frenetic and just a single piece of plastic to show for it. But what a record! Johnny Won’t Get To Heaven is up there with the best in its class.
“Singing about, and pretty much in the style of the Pistols, this Birmingham band sound as if they mean it m-a-n, although the words, will ensure this will get no airplay outside of the John Peel show. Tough lyric and committed helter-skelter speed freak playing on both sides of this, the strongest release yet from Cambridge’s Raw Records.”
Alan Lewis Sounds 30.7.1977
Just one of the greatest punk singles ever, featured Kevin Rowland (Dexys Midnight Runners) on vocals and Gem on bass who later went onto join Girlschool.
More tracks by the Killjoys are available on Various Artists ‘Raw Deal’ LP/CD (Damgood 209)
