"Formed from the ashes of a mid-'70s rock band called Horse, the founding members of Pumphouse Gang - Ricky Wreckage (vocals), Ralph Von Wau Wau (bass), SG Coolbridge (guitar) and Dread 'Family Man' Jones (drums) were active on the fringes of the UK punk scene as early as late 1976. The band made regular trips from their base in Ryde on the Isle Of Wight to play London's live circuit at venues like The Marquee, The Speakeasy and The Nashville, and on the same bill as acts like Generation X, Fabulous Poodles, The Lurkers and The Only Ones. This album features the best of Pumphouse Gang's material for Splash Records, including eight tracks never previously released on vinyl. Lost classics like 'When We Were Young', 'Black And White' and 'Teenage Lament' together with those now highly collectable Splash singles only emphasise how wrong the record buying public were to ignore the band back then. Perhaps this LP will go some way to righting that wrong." --James Denholm (Worthless Trash)
