RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2007

Expanded re-release of this much-loved Top Five UK chart album first released in June 1980. Often touted as ‘the UK’s answer to Blondie’, there was much more to The Photos than that, with fiery, Buzzcocks- like guitars coiling round Wendy Wu’s vocals.

Includes both sides of the band’s debut single, ‘I’m So Attractive’ c/w ‘Guitar Hero’, and later b-side ‘Je T’Aime’.

Plus the entire ‘Blackmail Tapes’ album of demos and out-takes.

With expanded artwork and liner notes written in collaboration with guitarist Steve Eagles, with accompanying interviews with associates around the band.

Formed in Evesham from the ashes of cult punk act Satan’s Rats, The Photos also released a clutch of great ‘garage-girl’ singles, including ‘Irene’, ‘Friends’ and ‘Now You Tell Me That We’re Through’, which all included here.

The band were originally due to sign with Cherry Red, before accepting an offer from CBS. Many moons later, Cherry Red is delighted at last to be able to offer a home to one of the great pop albums of the early ‘80s…
