From Blackpool, The Fits first demo tape. Decent stuff on here…went on to Rondelet Records for a couple of singles and an LP, but the high point for the band is the ‘Tears Of A Nation’ single on Corpus Christi Records released in 1983. After this high point they went downwards somewhat…

    Brilliant, you have just made my day…I remember going down South Shore in Blackpool one bloody cold January morning to grab a copy of this but the shop was shut and for some vague reason I never got it after that !!..

    Brilliant live and Tears Of A Nation was a killer, They did get lost after that basically because I dont think they could find a way out and upwards of the punk ghetto……
