THE STUPIDS were the legendary UK Hardcore Punk pioneers who, in three short years from 1984 to 1987 went from 4 track demos to the front cover of NME and Sounds and Indie Number 1 Chart albums. The first hardcore band to record a session for the John Peel Show, to openly embrace US Hardcore punk within their sound and style, THE STUPIDS paved the way for the whole UKHC scene and “Britcore” explosion that followed. The Godfathers of UK Skate Punk now finally get the reissues their back catalogue deserves, and the first time any STUPIDS reissues have been done with the complete involvement and backing of the band themselves. Four years in the making, the six part STUPIDS discography series with the bonus unreleased tracks and packaging making them the must-own versions for any hardcore punk fan.
Super deluxe DOUBLE VINYL LP version (with the bonus record featuring not only the Stupids flexi and Retard Picinc outtake tracks, but also the legendary COOLEST RETARDS “Another Minor Classic” demo which is finally released! All 30 of these tracks on the second record appear on vinyl for the first time!)
To make this release ultra special, the strictly limited edition pressing is on coloured splatter vinyl, with a 24 x 12″ insert and at the bands request the sleeve is a special REVERSE MANILLA BOARD sleeve, plus the CD version (with all 46 tracks!) also included in a PVC wallet and is limited to 300 copies, so its first come, first served!
This is the final part of our trilogy of deluxe repackaging of the STUPIDS albums !
This is a must own for any fans of the era, archiving recordings that are almost three decades old into a wonderful, must own package!
