Brutality, Religion And A Dance Beat


On this date in 1977, Big In Japan and The Chuddy Nuddies released a combined 7 inch record called Brutality, Religion And A Dance Beat. Big In Japan's contribution was "Big In Japan". The Chuddy Nuddies' contribution was "Do The Chad". This was the first release by Big In Japan but technically not The Chuddy Nuddies' debut. Because of contractual obligations to Stiff Records, this was an alias for The Yachts who had already released one single under their real name. Big In Japan, a Liverpool, England punk band, later included Budgie (of Siouxsie and The Banshees) and Holly Johnson (of Frankie Goes To Hollywood) and released only one other single. The Yachts, a Liverpool, England power pop/new wave band disbanded in 1981 with two albums and ten singles to their credit under their real name. J.J. Campbell went on to It's Immaterial. Martin Dempsey went on to Pink Military.
