Rare and obscure 7" release from this Leeds based band. This was the bands only release. The A-Side is an ode to the late great Gene Vincent. Late 1978 they changed their name to  "2TV" and went onto record a session for the late great "John Peel". In July 1980, it was announced that their debut single would be re-released under the bands new name but it was never pressed.

 

The above 6-Track Demo that that features "I", "Dear Heart", "Love Transfusion", "Mary Tompson", "Guys A Square" & "Have Ya Seen Gene" from late 1978 or early 1979 was sent into the "Bridge House" in Canning Town, London to see if they could secure some gigs there.

 

Above is an original gig advert from when the band played at "Hollies", Canning Town, London on Wednesday 19th April 1978.
