The best Lurkers post ever

This is yet another of those "I'm not fuckin around" posts, the Lurkers were kick-ass all the way, and I got enough material from them here to fill a small RV. They appeared on the scene in the late 1970's, some referred to them as something of an "English Ramones" (not sure I'd TOTALLY agree, but an interesting description nonetheless). They've had several lineup shifts which I'm not going to detail, and I'm also not going to go into a bunch of detal, as to their albums because we have so very many here.....zippy-willing (they have been mag-nif-ique of late) we'll get these all up, by Sunday nihgt, but here is the Cliff's Notes: If you like 1970's Brit-punk, check these.....if you like latter-day garage punk, check these.....if you like the Ramones and think a British version of same would be cool check these.....these guys cranked out cool single after cool single, they made some DAMN good music, and deserve a mega-post of this type. The Lurkers were the absolute shit, the fact that they are so unknown in the US says WAY more about the US than about them. Download all these albums, discover that they are fuckng great, comment, comment,comment, and realize that  BigScott62 knows all, and would never  steer his minions wrong.

No shit, these are some kick ass Brit-punk/garage rock will LOVE them! Check, at the very least, the Singles Anthology as a starting point, but this is some underrrated, underappreciated shit that NEEDs to be heard. As David Bowie once said "Come on you rock n rollers" appropriate phrase when it comes to the kick-ass Lurkers!
