Albertos Y Lost Trios Paranoias - Snuff Rock EP

If you were worried that the Punk and New Wave singles had run out, don't worry I have hundreds more to go yet. So here we are after a brief foray into the 1990's, back to 1977.

This was "Albertos (sometimes Alberto) Y Lost Trios Paranoias" third single and most probably most famous single. Although their fourth single "Heads Down No Nonsense, Mindless Boogie" (I will post this later) actually broke into the top 50 Their songs were a piss take of punk rock, that actually came out sounding very punk and not bad. . Listen to the start of "Kill" taking the piss out of the Damned's "New Rose", you can hear the classic beginning "is she really going out with him" in a posh voice, brilliant.
A little more etching trivia again, on the b-side: "Stiff is cheap, Snuff is free" and on the a-side "dedicated to Decca".
Band: Albertos (also sometime Alberto) Y Lost Trios Paranoias
Label: Stiff
Year: 1977
1. Kill
2. Gobbing On Life
3. Snuffin' Like That
4. Snuffin In A Babylon

So ripped from (very) scratched vinyl:

If you think this is too scratched then tell me and I will try to clean it up.

Just discovered your page, having searched for "Heads Down No Nonsense Mindless Boogie".

Even though that track wasn't actually here it turns out to be a treasure trove!

Thank you for your time and taste, you wonderful human being you

Kind of reminds me of when Cheech and Chong did that "punk" song 'Earache My Eye' with deliberately stereotypical "punk" lyrics.

Like that song, it also rocks pretty hard.

Hi Missdmon2, thanks for your comment, I'm afraid I don't have the songs you are looking for. perhaps someone else will be able to help.

Hi You Wot! thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. It's always good to hear some old songs you haven't heard for years.
