An 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.

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’, all included here. As a bonus, both sides of the band’s debut single, ‘I’m So Attractive’ c/w ‘Guitar Hero’, and later bside ‘Je T’Aime’, which have never before released on CD, are included!

The album also includes the entire “Blackmail Tapes” album of demos and out-takes. The artwork has been expanded to include new liner notes written in collaboration with guitarist Steve Eagles, with accompanying interviews with others around the band. The band were originally due to sign with Cherry Red, before accepting an offer from CBS. Nearly three decades 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.
