Micky Fitz & Steve Kent's UK - LP

Knock it back , Have another one... of those Heavy Metallish Punk release.

But let's Micky Fitz himself introduce the LP:

An interesting item indeed.... but what is it all about? No, it's not the end of the "Business". Far from it, we could not be stronger, especially with the return of founder member and original guitarist Steve Kent. In fact it was this album which actually led to this return to the fold. This record is a collection of songs written by Steve and myself, and our good friend and drinking partner Billy Karloff. It is something we have all wanted to record, but the songs never seemed right for the "Business", and so it seemed the songs were doomed to a sentence in limbo.
So.... instead of that terrible fate, and rather than a megalomiac Micky Fitz solo album, UK were born. Which seems an ideal vehicle for more heavy metal based songs.
It may come as some surprise to the more punkier amongst you, but let's be honest we all love Sham and the Pistols, as much as we do AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Motorhead etc. More fuel to the ultimate guitar crossover...... remember the real enemy SMASH THE DISCOS!!!!!!!!
Micky Fitz.

There's some fab stuff on this LP I tell you.... some fitting in the Heavy Metal category and some not much different from what the Business released at the time (around 1988).

I bought this in NYC one autumn weekend in 1987. Hemmed and hawwed over the $8.98 price for it.

Another direct hit from the J-Man.

Skenty come back, we miss you brother!

Tosh from Section 5 is the guitarist now (how fucking odd?) in the band. It's just Fitz, Tosh and two young blokes. The new stuff doesn't do it for me sadly but I'm glad I at least got to see a reunion of the late '80's (Welcome To The Real World era) line up once or twice.
