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 liner notes:
“She Moans / Bolweevil were songs recorded in 1973 and released as a 45 rpm vinyl
single in 1974, the record having since gained notoriety as being one of the first proto
punk singles to be released in the UK. These two tracks were recorded at Pye Studios,
Marble Arch, London in November 1973. Both songs were written by Alan Lee Shaw
with Alan Lee Shaw guitar / vocals and Rod Latter percussion / bass / piano.
Alan Lee Shaw and Rod Latter went on to play in the bands The Rings and The Maniacs
at the height of the 1976 / 77 UK punk rock phenomenon.”
She Moans also appeared on the now rare Bonehead Crunchers Vol. 3 compilation.
Alan Lee Shaw went on to play with Brian James of the Damned in the late 70´s,
and actually released an album he co-wrote with Rat Scabies with the Damned in
