Auntie Pus Halfway To Venezuela 7"

  • 7"

Julian Isaacs aka Auntie Pus, made a bet with his childhood friend Chris Millar (Rat Scabies of The Damned) that one of them would have a top ten record within 3 years. He of course lost that bet in less than a year as The Damned took the world by storm, but Isaacs carried on with his own brand of punk and Syd Barrett inspired songs. Auntie Pus would play with the best of the first wave of UK punk bands, and become frequent tour partners of bands like The Damned and The Ruts. In 1978 he finally recorded a single, with Rat on drums, which was eventually released with some help from the Ruts management, and did make it, not just into the weekly top 10 in Sounds, but “Single of the Week”, and top 10 in Record Mirror (though The Damned were pulling the reigns on the top 10 that week). Since then, the single has become a staple of conversations about under the radar 70s UK DIY punk and “messthetics” type singles. This 7″ is a deluxe edition with an unreleased track, artwork faithful to the original, a 4 page insert that includes photos, flyers, and an in depth interview which should be fascinating to any fan of 70s UK punk. Available on Black, Pink, and Green vinyl
