Maneaters - Nine To Five 7"

Most probably one of the most overlooked songs from the soundtrack of the film 'Jubilee'. Written (and performed I think) by Toyah Wilcox and Adam Ant this is a 24 carat punk classic. On the b-side another issue of the Suzi Pinns version of 'Jerusalem', I'm not sure how many time this was released but as its also a great song, who cares.

If you have the soundtrack then you have both of these, if not crank up the volume and enjoy.

So should Toyah and Adam Ant partnered more? Leave a comment.

Band: Various
Label: Ego Records
Year: 1978
Tracks:
1. Nine To Five - Maneaters
2. Jerusalem - Suzi Pinns

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl

Unfortunately the brilliant soundtrack is no longer in print but you can still get some copies in the amazon market place here:
Jubilee
and see the strange, but worth watching film here:
Jubilee [DVD] [1978]
