By Alliance

$22.99

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 album from the veteran British punks. In 1978 the 17 year old punks Peter Bywaters and Derek "Del" Greening founded Peter And The Test Tube Babies in the small town of Peacehaven near Brighton. After a couple of rehearsals they made their first recording 'Elvis Is Dead' which appeared on the Vaultage '78 compilation of Brighton new wave bands. Radio 1 DJ John Peel loved the song instantly and produced a John Peel session with the Test Tube Babies. The success was breathtaking and Peter And The Test Tube Babies became one of the hottest unsigned bands in the UK overnight. Nearly 40 years and a nice catalog of albums behind them, the band surprisingly now states: "We've actually held back our best record until just before retirement and we're more than happy that we were able to create this."
