2 Track 7″ single from ‘the Morons Of Medwaybeat’ Bolstering their ranks on the ‘a’ side is Johnny Johnson of Thee Headcoats, the track is actually having a moan up about always being the support band…which most of the time was supporting Thee Headcoats! Sold Out but it is on the 20 Golden Greats album.
