Menace – Screwed Up (The Best Of Menace) LP


Menace were one of the first wave of punk bands to explode out of the London scene in the summer of '77. They epitomised everything about that incredible year.  They played all the main punk gigs like the Roxy, Hope & Anchor and Vortex, as well as Rock Against Racism festivals, building up a large following which was boosted by regular support slots with Sham 69. They were pure punk! Initially signing to Illegal Records, their first charting single was 'Screwed Up/Insane Society'. However, their second single 'GLC' was much more controversial. It was a superb rant against the then Tory-run Greater London Council which tried to ban punk gigs in the capital. It was hard hitting with it's take no prisoners 'you're full of sh*t!' lyrics and was promptly banned my many radio stations. Three more singles followed, but by now, 1979, trouble was brewing. Fascist attendance at Sham 69 gigs, hostile press borne out of ignorance finally led to Menace calling it a day the first time round.
