Angelic Upstarts

Angelic Upstarts filmed for Top Of The Pops in 1979, doing "Teenage Warning". Nice mohair jumper Mensi. Could easily have won "The Most Demented Looking Man On TV Award" for this performance. This is a bit of a gratuitous post as I just gotta post "Shotgun Solution" the B side of The 1980 Warner Bros 7" release "Out Of Control". Why? Because it's a fantastic record, with some of the best swearing ever committed to vinyl.
There is an excellent article at Punk 77 along with some other great interviews, articles & scans, always worth a visit. Top track this one, apparently Mensi has just retired as singer. Shame that. Click on Mensi's ugly mug to go to their official web-site. Ding Dong.
