Classic band. I should get more stuff by them. I only have a CD reissue of the debut album. 

Also, I'm sure you know them and I've talked about them here before - but That Petrol Emotion, featuring a couple ex-members of the Undertones, also made some great albums.

You are right of course David. TPE was what the O'Neill brothers did next.

Yes. Of course. No home is complete without one!

My choices would be...

Essential pre-punk - Kick Out The Jams/The Stooges/Raw Power/Horses

Foundational/definitive - Ramones/The Modern Lovers/Never Mind The Bollocks/The Clash

Notable follow-ons while punk was metamorphosing into post-punk - Pink Flag/Crossing The Red Sea With The Adverts/Germfree Adolescents/The Undertones

Post-punk - too many to list. Personal favourites - Chairs Missing/Metal Box/This Heat/Entertainment!/Cut/Fear Of Music/The Correct Use Of Soap/Unknown Pleasures/Three Imaginary Boys/....

Chemicrazy is a severely underrated TPE gem.

Absolutely love TPE - my very favouritest "geetar band" of the late 80s and early 90s Big smile. While Chemicrazy is certainly the LP to take to a desert island if you could only have one, all the others are not far behind IMLTHO - and what a storming live act they were!

For those similarly inclined, you may want to know that 80% of the final TPE lineup (i.e. everyone except the US-based Steve Mack) reconvened in 2014 and made another cracking LP under a new moniker:


I gather they're hoping to record a follow-up post-Covid....
