Raped - Pretty Paedophiles


On this date in 1978, Raped released their debut EP, Pretty Paedophiles. The four song EP contained "Moving Target", "Raped", "Escalator Hater" and "Normal". Shock value, yes! Sales, no! At the time, the band was a pure punk band whose name was obviously unmarketable. So the London punk band abruptly changed their name to Cuddly Toys, their style to glam and...still no commercial success. They alienated their punk fans and never really gathered a whole lot of new fans as Cuddly Toys...except in Japan. They were done under either name by 1982.
