Reissued 7/21/2023, Originally released 1978
Super-cool one-off collectors pressing bespoke 500 copies ONLY! Comes in fold out paper sleeve and specially silk-screened Punk 45 outer sleeve! // Superb exact reproduction of this excellent two-sider (double B-side!) 'The Only Sound'/ 'New Musical Express', the debut punk single by Dansette Damage from Birmingham, originally released on the tiny Shoestring Records in early 1978. Pop trivia: the tracks were produced incognito by Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin. // "Robert put all needles in the red which is why it sounds so raw! Also, we couldn't sing and you can hear Robert's high falsetto at the top end, trying to keep us lot in tune!" // Original copies of this record sell for £100+, so here is a chance to see and hear what all the fuss is about! // Dansette Damage's 'NME' features on Soul Jazz Records' Punk 45 'I'm A Mess’.
