Killjoys: Naive 12"

Damaged Goods


Limited repressing of a long lost Killjoys mini album which originally came out on DG back in 1991, this time it’s on red, white and blue vinyl! Before Kevin Rowland launched Dexys Midnight Runners he was the lead singer in this great punk band from the Midlands. Classic amphetamine punk. They were supposed to be making tapes for an album but they split before anything happened and a supposed deal with Bronze was scuppered by Mr Rowland. Around mid 77 they lost Heather and Joe 90 (on Kevin’s insistence probably) and acquired a new drummer, Bob Peach, and guitarist Keith Rimell and became virtually a different band as Mr Rowland again sought to jump ship.. And lastly from Rowland himself these words from Mojo October 2001. “There was no doubt in my mind that I was at least as passionate and angry and as from the street as any punk rock singer you could name. But it was wrong for me to try to be part of someone else’s thing.”
