This is a MUST for anyone into Power Pop/Mod. Founded by Ted Waite and Jonathan Beardsworth in 1973 at the age of fifteen under the moniker Gypsy they bashed out their first teenage efforts with a cover of “Radar Love” it wasn´t until 1976 when Paul Hart-Woods and Colin McCaig joined, that they started to play their first original material accompanied by covers like “Suffragette City” or “Black Magic Woman” due to the fact that Punk and it´s ancestors still being stuck in the traffic jam up the M1 to West Yorkshire. Right in time with Anthony Peart joining on rhythm guitar as the fifth member and increasing the number of original songs within´ their set, their personal musical trigger button was hit by the bomb pop sounds of Elvis Costello and his debut “My Aim Is True” on Stiff Records. They then set out to write breakneck speed pop songs drenched in sweat and fuelled by nothing stronger than Tetleys Bitter and they walked it tall through beer stained and smoke filled venues in and around Leeds and Bradford. Eventually settling on the name City Limits, they released their lone EP, “Morse Code Messages”, in 1979. As well as all 3 tracks from this ultra rare record, the album includes what was to have been their second 7" plus 6 other studio tracks and 2 high energy live recordings. “Watch out all you power pop ultra fanatics and 1979 heart attack rhythm lovers ´cause after having elevated your skinny tied soul to seventh heaven top floor with the incredible full-length comeback of The Jetz last year, Queen Mum Records is back with another masterstroke that you´ll rub your hands and wet your pants for. A treasure chest tailor-made for Kidnap and his dedicated label work to dig deeper in and start the hunt for more hidden diamonds that even the most nerdy collector hasn´t dared to dream of yet while cuddling his near mint Clive Culbertson and Sudden Fun originals. If you are searching for another addition to your teenage anthem gallery besides top notch purveyors like The Jags, Donkeys, Tours, Exits, and The Heats, if you want some more power pearls to dance the night and your sorrows away, then this record´s for you!” – Vibratorbuzzblog.com GREAT!!
