Awesome Irish Punk rarity from Dublin, this ultra rare 7" was released in a limited quantity of 250 in 1989 with most being destroyed by the band after breaking up. Puke n Vomit is happy to rescue this awesome lost treasure. It has been repressed in limited quantity complete with insert, if your into catchy 80s UK Punk/ Oi! you'll dig this.

For fans of Blitz, Conflict, The Enemy and NOTA



Our take: Puke N Vomit digs up this total punk obscurity. According to the liner notes, these two songs originally came out in a tiny, self-released edition of 250, but almost all of those copies were thrown away after the record failed to find distribution. I think Second Attack had a few things working against them. The first was that they were a one-person project. While the insert has a flyer showing Second Attack as support on some Conflict gigs, I can’t imagine it was easy for a project like this to get noticed in the pre-internet era. The second issue is that they recorded this in 1989 and the record presumably came out shortly thereafter, meaning this was WAY late to the party. This record sounds like a long lost treasure from the No Future Records catalog, but it’s being released at the same time as Nirvana’s Bleach. Thankfully, today’s punks can hear it because this is a solid single. The sound is primitive punk a la Red Alert or the 4 Skins, nothing more and nothing less. You could slip these tracks onto a new pressing of the Oi! compilations and I guarantee no one would bat an eye, so if that’s your style, don’t let the date on this one deter you.
