The Quick were one of the pre-eminent bands of the early LA punk scene. featuring ex- and future members of The Three O'clock, Weirdos, Cruzados, and The Rembrants, they were discovered and produced by the legendary hustler Kim Fowley, who got them a deal with Mercury Records, like his other charges The Runaways....disillusioned by the inactivity of the label, The Quick left to find pastures new. The Quick were the band who re-opened the Whiskey-A-Go-Go as a live venue, where they played on bills with Television,T he Ramones, The Runaways, The Zeros and even Van Halen!! Beck, Norman Blake, Redd Kross, Alan McGee, Michael Stipe, and Pat Smear were and are among their many fans. This first-ever CD collection consists of the demos produced by Kim Fowley which landed them their deal, and post album recordings produced by Beck's father David Campbell.....the real sound of LA punkpop mutating into the Paisley Underground.....a must, and another Rev-ola classic! This album has never been released on CD anywhere! And includes songs covered By The Dickies and Redd Kross. Produced by Kim Fowley and David Campbell (Beck's dad!) this album has a large celebrity fanbase but will be a favourite amongst us all!

Laughing Academy
From a background working in left-wing English fringe theatre groups, Punishment Of Luxury were a four-man post-punk band formed in December 1976 in the north-east of England, and released a single, ‘Puppet Life’ on the Small Wonder label in June 1978.

In 1979 they signed to United Artists and released the single ‘Jellyfish’/’Engine Of Excess’ and the album Laughing Academy. 1980 saw the release of the single Secrets/Brain Bomb. All received critical acclaim and sold well. 

An extensive European tour followed and United Artists sent the band into the studio to record another album, a concept album to be called Gigantic Days. However while the recording was still going on, United Artists were taken over by EMI, who dropped the band.

This, their debut album has long been out of print and sought after in the CD format, now thanks to a licensing deal with EMI it’s available again.

The new package features new notes by respected journalist Malcolm Dome who speaks to founder member Neville about his experiences in the band at the time.  It also has as an enhanced booklet with rare photos and memorabilia.
