Reissue of rare proto-punk 45 originally released on Alaska Records in 1974. Sales must have been minimal as most of the very few copies that turn up for sale these days are demo copies, and they usually fetch a high price. While the 1974 release didn´t come in a picture sleeve, the re-issue has a cool old style cover design. Limited pressing of 300 copies.
From the ashes of VOM rose the Angry Samoans! In 1978 they recorded their first demos in a cheap two track studio. Some of these tracks have appeared as bonus tracks on long deleted album re-issues, others were released on a long deleted 7´´, one sees the light of day for the first time ever! Learn More
