Limited edition vinyl release featuring original Croydon punks The Daleks along with their associated bands Strictly Rockers and ViaVess!"... honest, heartfelt songs, steeped in earnest melancholy and charming naivete.

Slimy Toad's brother, Nicky, who co-wrote"I'm a cunt" with me, had it on tape cassette. I rememberwe used to turn it right up in the middle of Ugly because Hugh Cornwall shouted "it's only the fucking rich that get to be good looking".

I'd seen 'The Daleks' sprayed on a wall in the town and got chatting to Eddie one day, they were looking for a drummer - The general consensus locally was that he was a great songwriter. I think theband name came from the end of Remote Control by the Clash - 'gonna be a Dalek... I obey!' There was quite a few line-up changes before the record, it was me that suggested Gaz as afront man. He'd just been expelled from my school for dying his hair and looked the part... yellow creepers to boot! It was him that did the artwork for the record sleeve and got all ourmates to get photo booth pictures...
