Victims: Television Addict 7"

euro import


Without question, the Victims debut 45 is one of the 5 best Australian punk singles ever recorded, not to mention one of the greatest punk singles ever. Originally self-released in 1977 in a highly limited edition, "Television Addict" is an absolute classic. Snotty garage punk at it's finest with perhaps the first ever hardcore track "(I'm) Flipped Out Over You" (predating the BAD BRAINS, BLACK FLAG, & MIDDLE CLASS by a few years) on the flip side. It's Even 35 years after it was released, it still stands up as one of the best examples of Australian punk rock. This single is right up there with the SAINTS' "(I'm) Stranded" or anything that Radio Birdman ever did. The cult status of these Perth punks continues to grow enormously as original copies of the "Television Addict" 45 have sold for between $750-$2000 recently. This limited reissue features excellent sound quality with an accurate reproduction of the original printed labels. The original cover art is reproduced on a cardstock sleeve.
