PURE PRESSURE - Demo (1990)



The Fits came from Blackpool, and were a slight cut above the rest of the 1980’s Punk bands; with their Rock’n’Roll tinged Punk rock tunes; less thrash more trash! Sadly they split up around 1985 amongst a mess of eyeliner and violence. Singer Mickey Fits had taken to wearing make up on stage, as a reaction to the violence that often marred Punk gigs during the 80’s. Fortunetly this wasn’t the last to be heard of Mickey, who went on to form Pure Pressure, along with a couple more members of The Fits, their sound veered to the more rocky side of things, coming across like a slightly less heavy Zodiac Mindwarp or The Cult, while still maintaining a punk rock sensibility. Good stuff! Give it a blast! Here!

Nuzz,
That my friend is a truly beautiful thing. Never seen or heard a copy of this before. Puts me in mind of The Who at times! Deffinite Mod revival sound in there bit like the latter Fits singles. another conribution to your taking over my turntable!
