180 gr. Limited Clear Vinyl RSD 2021 Editions

– Debut solo album for Alternative Tv’s frontman and long-time running Uk punk scenester, originally released in 1980 on Deptford Fun City Records, reissued now for the first time on vinyl ! Mark Perry was also the man behind the iconic Sniffin’ Glue zine, founded in July 1976. The album was produced by Grant Showbiz, principally known for his work with The Fall, The Smiths and Billy Bragg, and it is literally an art-rock nugget. Sort of an autobiographical work, the record is full of twisted hooks, showing the dark side of post-punk. Less hysterical than the output released with Alternative Tv, Snappy Turns should be considered as a post-apocalyptic pop record. This reissue contains two bonus tracks : “Whole world’s down on me” and “I live- He dies” from 1980’s single.
