Now a band I didn’t know until today but a piece is on the tape compilation Where The Wilder Things Are which I posted six weeks ago: The Only Alternative, Neil (vocals), George (bass), David & Roland (guitars) and David (drums), London punkers gathered in the early 80s and playing good traditional old school melodic punkrock and in 1985 they released their first longplayer on Midnight Music “As Fate Would Have It …” with twelve solid short rockin’ songs and it’s unmistakable that they are rooted in the 50’s American Rock’N’Roll. The second album had to wait no more than at least fourteen years, “File Under Anti-Government” saw the light only in 1999. Moreover, only vocalist Neil Thompson remained from the first line-up in the group. Whether the band is still active eludes my knowledge…. time for breakfast.
