Bye-Byes Ain't Nice TELESCOPE Bye-Byes Ain't Nice

If you collect British punk rock, then here's an interesting one for you… an extremely scarce limited edition 1977 UK 2-track 7" single that, although might be considered 'bandwagon jumping', blows away many independent efforts that year from these shores. The A-side is a fuzzed-up, acid-drenched, punk screamer of a track, with layered guitars, synth squelches, and a pace that doesn't hang around – 3 minutes of bliss! Brought to light on the first Teenage Treats compilation, British punk rock was rarely served up like this. Created by two members of Upp and rumoured to involve Andy Clark, this very rarely comes to the online market with the all important picture insert, as only a handful of copies were ever issued with it. Complete with die-cut Pentagon sleeve, this cult item remains in MINT condition PENT5.
