SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK - Early Demos (1984 - 87)


Back in 1985/86 SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK were either the future of Rock'n'Roll or one big over hyped piece of shit. All mouth and pink trousers, wigs, make up and high heels, with Rock'n'Roll riffs, techno dance beats and samples, this was the sound of the 21st Century. I saw 'em several times and they were one of the best live bands I've seen, and their debut album Flaunt It is a desert island disc of mine, but enough of that shit, here are a collection of demos from 1984 – 87, these as far as I am aware are not the same as those released as the First Generation album. Thanx to the original uploader of these over at guitars101 forum.   NEW LINK HAS BEEN SORTED!

Thanks for this, I was at that Coventry Lanch gig, I seem to recall I could be seen on one of the front pages of the tabloids (The Daily Mirror I think) as to avoid being crushed by the forward surge, I ended up half on stage in front of Neal X. It was a great gig ruined by some twat

I've seen some amazing punk/alternative (for want of a better word) bands over the years (including many of the 'greats' (for want of a better word) and I have to say SSS are right up there with the best of them. Sadly they were easily seen as a one dimensional gimmick band ty their detractors but they were astonishing live.

I still think the Love Missile F1-11 video sums it up. Watch other promos from that period and then watch SSS. To quote Bladerunner, "the star that shines twice as bright burns half as long".
