Their next release was their debut single which in my opinion is an even better version, with the harmonica and piano it sounds much more commercial (but still excellent) and could easily be played on any radio station. With the right airplay this could of (and should of) been a hit, but it looks as though it will continue to be a rarity (only 500 copies of the single) to be listened by people into the more obscure punk sounds. I love the way it fades out and back at the end of the song.
The b-side 'Seventeen' is very different and if you follow an earlier posting of this single on Worhless Trash I have to agree with one of the comments that believes it sounds like early Springsteen. Listening to this and then the 'Farewell to the Roxy' you would never know that it is the same band.
