An interesting chapter in punk history! Brighton based four-piece The Depressions were originally formed in 1975. Under the name of Tongue they gigged solidly around their local area, playing mainly Small Faces and Who covers. Once caught by the new punk virus, in '77, they changed their name to The Depressions and began to concentrate on their own songwriting abilities.
Their 1978 s/t LP offered an exciting mixture of punk, powerpop and pubrock. It was released by Barn Records, the label owned by ex-Animals bassist and former Jimi Hendrix/Slade manager Chas Chandler.
This is a limited edition reissue on 180-gram vinyl, limited to 500 copies.
