Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias - Snuff Rock 7"

I'm not sure if the band's name was officially Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias or Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias (the latter seems to make more sense) but it's spelt Lost on this single.

The Albertos were a comedy musical troupe, for this release they spoofed the 1977 punk scene, and in doing so produced one of my favourite punk songs ever - "Kill". The rest of this EP's not bad either, although the reggae song sucks. The band's stage show at this time ended with the singer faking his suicide, hence the title Snuff Rock.

Stiff Records 1977


A1 - Kill
A2 - Gobbin' On Life
B1 - Snuffin' Like That
B2 - Snuffin' In A Babylon

The original name was Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias, the 't' was added later, specifically for this release, allegedly because it contained 'lost' tracks. However, if you go to http://www.cplee.co.uk/albertos.html, you'll notice that while the 't' is present on the album cover, it's missing from the review.
