Compiled by Birmingham Musician and Designer Dave Twist. This Compilation features many well known and completely unknown faces from the scene and some local Heroes such as Nikki Sudden, Stephen Duffy, Jowe Head and Dave Kusworth. In the light of the film King Rocker by Stewart Lee about The Nightingales revised interest in the post punk sound of Birmingham is increasing. Duran Durans John Taylor is featured in his first band Dada (with Twist on drums) sounding not a bit like his MTV champions of the 80s. Some of these tracks were only ever issued on a very small run 7 at the time and some were never issued at all, such as The Hawks (until recently and to great acclaim).
