VA - Earcom #3 2x7"

3rd and final issue in the series, this one is a double 7" instead of a 12". This one is interesting to me because of the inclusion of "Out Of Vogue" by the Middle Class, which was probably the 1st ever hardcore punk single, although that's a much disputed point. I wonder how much influence, if any, bringing this song to the UK might have had on the emerging faster bands starting up then (Discharge etc). They probably weren't aware of much of the American stuff at that point, at least I think that was the reason Alternative Tentacles put out the Let Them Eat Jellybeans comp a couple of years later. Which I might post later, I may even scan the poster if I can work out how to use the scanner!

Yes brilliant. Thanks. My friend Grant told me in 1990 that Stupid Babies featured the human later known as 'Adamski', but I don't know if this is true..

Yes, it is true, you can check his myspace.

for years the story was that Adamski was in The Prats (despite them being from Inverness) - they were on Earcom 1 of course and all aged around 12, so easy mistake for someone to make!
