The Now - Development Corporation

Development Corporation is one of my all time favourite punk vinyl’s, I have played it, taped it, played it more and now I have digitized it for eternal playing.
With all of the compilations, and collections on the market I cannot understand why this has never been re-released. So imagine my feeling when I discovered that ‘The Now’ had reformed to rerecord their old material including ‘development corporation’ I immediately ordered it, thinking at last more people will hear what made this song and other Now material so good.
When it was delivered I ripped open the box and straight into the car CD player, I was at first a little disappointed that Development Corporation was a different version, but then delighted to find DC77 another version more akin to the original (but still not the same). I am now really pleased I have a load of new material plus I still have my original vinyl.
So for those of you that don’t have this, or even more important for those of you that have never heard of it; download and enjoy, and then order the new album

and give the Now the recognition they so richly deserved as being one of the best punk bands of 1977-78.

I always preferred "Development Corporations" to "Into The 80s" (good though that is): nice post. There's a great 7" reissue on the Last Year's Youth label, for anyone who doesn't fancy the squander on an Ultimate original.

Hi thanks for your comments. I didn't know Development Corporation had been reissued.
