The Tights - Howard Hughes

The Tights second single and for me their best, Howard Hughes is a classic and if you haven't heard of it before you are in for a treat.

The Tights were the first band to release a single on the classic 'Cherry Red Records' see scan of label below.

The b-sides not bad, but you will struggle to get 'Howard Hughes' out of your head.

Band: The Tights
Label: Cherry Red
Year: 1978
1. Howard Hughes
2. China's Eternal

Ripped from glorious (very) scratched vinyl:

If you like this then go out and buy the excellent Cherry Records Punk Singles collection. It has this posting and 'The Tights' classic first single, plus the Dead Kennedy's excellent 'Holiday In Cambodia'. its worth it for these track alone, but you get more as well:
