I wasn't planning another "Electric Chairs" post for a while, but this one's especially for Andy C who requested it in the "London" posting comment (and has also commented lots of other times - thanks Andy).
He said the b-side "On the Crest was really good and not available anywhere. I was quite surprised as I have always commented how good punk b-sides often are, but I hadn't played this one. It took me three attempts to get a reasonable recording (it was pretty scratched) and by then I was singing along. Andy C was right it's excellent (I wasn't so keen on the first play, so give it a few spins).
I think most people will know the a-side "F*** Off" so I won't say anymore on this. One point of note, Jools Holland played piano on this track.
This record was definitely where The Electric Chairs started with the sex,smut and shock theme: The song title and lyrics, the Label is Sweet FA, The serials number is WC 1. even the etching has a "A Porky Prime #@=£".
The b-side etching is a more simple and clean one: "Turn Me Over".
Band: The Electric Chairs
Label: Sweet FA
