Product Description

Product Description

Late 70s UK punk band who released two singles on the
Subversive label. This 20 track album compiles both EPs and their gig at
the John Peel Roadshow.

About the Artist

The Nuclear Socketts formed in King's Lynn, Norfolk in April, 1979. At their first gig later that year, John Peel was in the audience. He became an immediate convert and would later give the band considerable airplay. <P>The band released two singles in 1981, the first of which was the `Honour Before Glory' EP, released in January. It made No.1 in the King's Lynn chart. It was so successful that the band started their own label Subversive and released records by Reality, European Toys and Section A. <P>In March, 1981 the band appeared as part of the John Peel Roadshow at Lowestoft College. The gig was recorded and appears here. <P>August saw the release of the `Play Loud' 7". In the same month the band recorded a John Peel session with ex-Mott The Hoople's Dale Griffin. <P>Both singles are highly sought after amongst 70s punk collectors and killed-by-death fans. <P>The band continued to gig but without the assistance of a bigger label folded in 1983. <P>`Overload' compiles their two singles and their live appearance with John Peel, who introduces their set and is packaged in a 12-page booklet with rare photos and a detailed band history.

At the end of the 1970's and the beginning of the 1980's there wasn't a lot to do in and around King's Lynn. The only thing to do was to listen to the area's number one export - The Nuclear Socketts.

When you look at the track listing, there are some repeats, but the tracks are either recorded in the studio, in session or live. This provides quite a variety.

I've wanted a Sockett's CD for years, now I am able to relive my youth some 30 years later.
