Above is an insert that came with my copy of the record. It tells you that the band are on tour with 'The Lambrettas' and lists the dates and venues.


A very rare and obscure UK release from this London based band. Caught in-between the Punk and Mod scenes, they never fulfilled their true potential. However, they did play on the same bill as a lot of the Mod Revival bands that were gigging at the time. They even went on a short tour of the UK with 'The Lambrettas'.

In 1980 when the band split, they splintered into two different bands. Sam Hodgkin & Martyn Clapson along with Trudi Baptiste, Ian Cleverly & Stuart Kennedy formed 'King Trigger' and John Turner joined 'Dance Chapter' just as they released their second single on the '4AD' Label by replacing 'Jonnie Lowrence' in 1981. The strange thing is that the debut release by 'Dance Chapter' before John Turner was actually in the band was called 'Anonymity'. Was this the same track that appeared on 'John Turners' first record by 'The Scoop' or was it just a bizarre coincidence?
