The Friendly Hopefuls - A Tribute To The Punks Of '76


On this date in 1981, The Friendly Hopefuls released their debut single, "A Tribute To The Punks Of '76". It was backed by a dub mix of the A side. Essentially, it was a punk take on the disco "Stars On 45" single that sampled various disco songs. This record was a medley of tracks by Buzzcocks, Eater, The Damned, The Jam, The Clash and Sex Pistols. The actual band performing was a Cambridge, England band called The Cynics. The lead vocalist for this track was Andy Blade, ex-Eater.
