I hope you can help me. I'm trying to find out about a single by the Nottingham HC band Revulsion. I noticed the comp Anti Society Vol 3, and the track Out of Touch by Repulsion. The song I'm looking for had lyrics that were anti-fox hunting in nature. It was an absolutely AMAZING track and I would *love* to get hold of it somehow, anyhow. But first I need to try and suss out what the title of it was (and what label it was on). If you know, please do tell me. Maybe it was Out of Touch, the track on the comp? Or if you don't know, but think someone out there could help me, please point me in the right direction.
Asked by Rob Jones
Don't know if this might help, but the UK band
Revulsion only had two releases that I'm aware of,
1985's "Ever Get the Feeling of Utter Revulsion" LP
(great album, still have it), and a single that came
out in the late 1990s that I have not heard called
"The Only Revolution". The LP was released on Radical
Change Records, the label most closely associated with
UK anarcho band the Disrupters and who released all of
their 3 LPs and 2 7"s. They also did releases by Self
Abuse, Icon AD, one of the Destructors LPs...I also
know I've got a 7" compilation ep that has Revulsion
on it, along with Deviated Instinct and some other
mid-80s pre-crust/grindcore type bands (1 song each I
think) but I can't remember what it was called,

Would it have been called,' The return of Noddy the Punk', if so I will have a dig around, I have it but whether it still plays is a different matter.

early 80's that i absolutely love, but i still have no idea who did
it after all this time. it sounded like tough midpaced uk punk.

Answered by various
I am wondering if you can help me find a very old friend of mine who I lost touch with in the late 90's just after he got married. You have information on your web site about the Expolited. I'm looking for Deptford John. I have known him since the mid 80's and we kept in touch over the years as I spent time in England and he was always touring here in the states with various bands. I also worked in the concert industry but got out of it in the late 90's. The last time we spoke he was here with the Black Crows and then here on his honeymoon. I moved several times, changed e-mails etc.
I would very much appreciate it if you know of anyone still in touch with John who would pass this e-mail along. I'll be in England for the month of April.

In that documentary there are three songs, first is 'Victimised' by Chaos UK, then the guys singing song from The Mob and then there's that song: 'I TAKE DRUGS AND GET DRUNK, (CAUSE) I'M A PUNK!'. Or something like that.
Who sings THAT song??
Asked by firstname.lastname@example.org
the song is called "im a punk" and its by an Australian band called THE RUDE
BAND I used to have it on tape but wouldn't know where to get original, if
memory serves its a spoof i.e. pisstake of punk rock by some people and they
not real punk band or anything i.e. a joke record but its pretty good song
I just found out that that song is by The Rude Band. It's called "I'm A Punk" and is sung by Doug Mulray, who was a former host of the breakfast time slot on Sydney FM radio station 2MMM in the 1980s.

I have a song called Never Give Up. It has a gang chorus "Never, never,
never give up" The first and second verse start with the word
"Never...", and the song is 2:45 long. It has a UK 80's sound, catchy
and not fast, just rockin'! What the hell is it?
Asked by Simon
Could it be Never Give Up by The Bristles? They're a Swedish Hardcore band from the early/mid 80's. A tremendous band who deserve a CD reissue of their stuff I think. Anyway snoop about on the net and you'll find some details about them.

Anyone got any news on the skin oi band The Elite from the early 80's. Any pics or what records they released if any. Maybe they have a webpage. Thanks a lot.
Asked by Mal
The Elite released one single on their own label,its called "Thats what I want".Daryl Smith now plays with the legendary Cocksparrer and also Argy Bargy.
I think Argy Bargy(probably be on the punk n oi web site) may have their own web page but Cocksparrer is usually too busy for them to answer individual queries.
answer by Mo
Whilst I'm happy to give anyone any info they want on The Elite that I played
in (1990's) - I think that the original question was regarding the early '80's
Oi band THE ELITE.
We had nothing to do with them and were unaware of any band going by that name
when we started. This caused us a few problems along the way but hey ho! So if
you're after info on the ELITE that used to play down the Stick of Rock, supported
The Adicts, Blitz, Cock Sparrer, Lurkers, Heavy Metal Kids, Chelsea etc and had
a picture of page 3 bird Debee Ashby in her bra and knickers on the front cover
of our single then I'm happy to help.
The only thing I've ever heard about the other Elite is that they appeared in
the BBC documentary 40 Minutes with COMBAT 84. They were apparently the band
on stage when it all kicked off.That's 3rd hand info by the way! I remember the
lyric "let Reg & Ron out on parole, create more jobs so there's less
on the dole!
