The Sound Of Giffer City

EUR 10,00EUR 13,00

Formed in 1978 as one of the earliest and best Mod Revival band, fizzled out and ceased to be in the mid 80’s.

Now they are back with 15 new songs, including a re-working of their old live classic ANTI CND which has never been previously recorded by LTS.

A great mix of all their influences, packed into one sound. Sure, the Mod revival beat is still somewhere there, but incorporated in a really strong 1970’s CBGB’s sound. Let´s call it GIFFER!

The Band

Formed at school in 1978 by Tony Perfect and Keith Mono & soon became the darlings of the Mod Revival movement!

'1970s Boy' was already recorded in February 1979 and before most of the later poped up Mods knew what a Mod was. But after a long delay their debut single did not hit the streets before end of '79. The fanzine 'Maximum Speed' #9 from 1979 described it in the following way:

"Wankers of the week award goes to WEA Records..." for holding the single in the can for about six month.
