Penetration - Race Against Time


On this date in 1980, Penetration released their third album, Race Against Time. The A side consisted of demos made between 1977 and 1978. The B side were live tracks recorded between 1978 and 1979. The album was made to look like a bootleg because of contractual issues with the record company and the fact that the band had disbanded a few months before. The Newcastle, England punk band released five singles and two albums before disbanding in 1980 (plus this third album). Pauline Murray went on to work with The Invisible Girls. Penetration re-formed in 2001.
