The 101'ers - Sweet Revenge


On this date in 1981, The 101'ers released their second single, "Sweet Revenge". It was backed by "Rabies (From The Dogs Of Love)". Well, THEY didn't actual release it. It was released for them. The London protopunk band had disbanded in 1976 but since their lead singer Joe Strummer had made a bigger name for himself in The Clash, the recordings were of interest. They had only released one single while actually together. A compilation album called Elgin Avenue Breakdown would be released later in the year and include the A side of this single. The B side would be added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on CD. The group's last two gigs were in support of Sex Pistols. The lead singer/guitarist was Woody Mellor. He would change his name to Joe Strummer when he joined the Clash.
