Basczax was formed by Mick Todd, a Redcar, Cleveland UK, based Bass player - nothing to do with Blitzkrieg Bop - two members of that band DID JOIN Basczax in early 1979 to complete the line-up that recorded these tracks and the Earcom 2 tracks.
Basczax also released a cassette only album 'Terminal Madness' in 1979. There has recently been talk of a compilation CD provisionally titled 'The Eyeliner Years'.
