This may have been the first ever British punk rock album, (although Deviants fans may disagree) as crucial to the genre in the UK as Funhouse or Kick Out The Jams were in the States, but it also set the tone for most of the boot stomping terrace glam that followed (Slade, Mott and the Faces for starters). Alan Butler and Jesse Hector, on bass and guitar respectively, formed Crushed Butler in early 1969, with 17 year old drummer, actor and teen mag pin-up Darryl Read. Playing prestigious gigs with the likes of Atomic Rooster, Mott The Hoople, Osibisa and Kevin Ayers, Crushed Butler routinely blew the headlining act off the stage with their ferocious brand of hooligan rock. Recorded in 1970, released 21 years later in a handful of copies, reissued here in luxurious 180gr vinyl, with printed inner sleeve and extended liner notes. Limited edition of 500 copies.
