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.
46 tracks in total including not only the Stupids flexi and Retard Picinc outtake tracks, but also the legendary STUPIDS offshoot band COOLEST RETARDS “Another Minor Classic” demo which is finally released for the first time!
