ACTION PACT: The Punk Singles Collection (192kbps)

!Action Pact! were a punk rock band, formed in 1981 by guitarist Wild Planet, bassist Dr. Phibes, and drummer Joe Fungus. Joe Fungus also played with the Punk band called, Savage Upsurge. The John from Dead Mans Shadow, was the original singer of the band, when they were known as The Bad Samaritians. He left the band to concentrate on D.M.S. He was replaced by a girl named, George Cheex, who got the job because of "her courage to scream along with the band's songs!" Both George and Joe were 15 years old and still attending school, at the time the "Heathrow Touchdown" EP came out in October, 1981. The 2 tracks, London Bouncers and All Purpose Action Footwear, got the attention of Radio 1 DJ John Peel. He played the single many times on the airway and wanted the band to do their first session, which broadcasted on February 22nd, 1982. They recorded "People," "Suicide Bag", "Mindless Aggression", "Losers", and "Cowslick Blues".
The response was sufficient enough to make it on Fall Out Records, which made it their first signings and their debut release "Suicide Bag"EP which was labeled on July 1982, which rocketed to the top of the Punk charts. Later members included Grimly Fiendish on drums and Thistles on bass, also a guest appearance by their producer Phil Langham on bass under the name Elvin Pelvin.

Hey there. I just discovered your site a few days ago and all I can say is WOW. I just wish I had discovered it sooner, as there are some real gems in the archives I have not heard in ages.
Thanks so much for all the effort you put into this blog. I for one appreciate it immensely.
