The Veins (Lose Control To Rock n Roll)

I hope everyone had a great holiday, thanks for all the comments and well wishes. Here's the second effort from the Penkhull based outfit known as The Veins. While researching the band, I stumbled upon Their first single. You can check it out at the great Punk Business Manager site, along with lots of info, especially in the comments. Although I agree with Tony, this record shows signs that it may suck, I think it's a solid release. Side one's a upbeat pubrock type stomper, while side two has sort of a later Dammed feel to it. I found THIS Page, as well as a MYSPACE page for your reading pleasure. The Myspace page says there's a third single which I'm gonna assume was unreleased.
Redball Records 1979

Thanks for the comments, glad you like the record. I believe these guys were from a city known as Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, England.

Stoke on Trent is just an hour up the road from SPASM'S home town Chesterfield.I saw The Veins live twice in the old days they were a good band...i'd actually forgotten all about them till i saw the post....NICE ONE!
