Angelic Upstarts : Alternative Chartbusters (1991 - LP)

The Angelic Upstarts were a staunchly anti-fascist, anti-police, working class punk band of late 1970s and early 1980s. The "Upstarts" (as they are commonly referred) formed in South Shields, North-East England in 1977.
The original line up for the band was Mensi (vocals), Mond (guitar), Steve Forsten (bass) and Decca Wade (drums). The band have reformed and split a few times over the years and some of the ex members include bass players, Ronnie Wooden, Glyn Warren, Tony Feedback, Ronnie Rocker and Max Splodge who also had a stint playing drums. Other drummers have included Sticks (who later joined The Cockney Rejects), Paul Thompson (ex Roxy Music) and Chris White. Decca Wade rejoined the band for a few years before leaving again.
Brian Hayes originally joined the band as second guitarist until Mond left leaving Brian as the only guitarist. Mensi is the only original member to still be with the band.
