One of the original Punk Rock class of ’77, 999 were fronted by Nick Cash who as plain old Keith Lucas had paid his dues in the pre-Punk Kilburn & The High Roads alongside Ian Dury. Signed to United Artists they unleashed a whole raft of anthems for the Punk Rock masses – ”Nasty Nasty”, “Emergency”, “Feelin’ Alright With The Crew” and “Homicide” to name but a few and they continued to fly the flag for the movement even when struggling against the odds. They scored three top 75 hit singles in 1981 when most of their compatriots had all but given up! Always a high tempo live band, Nick led the ever loyal Guy Days (guitar) and Pablo LaBritain (drums) around the globe on more then a few occasions with a set packed full of classics.
A 2 on 1 coupling of 999’s third studio album with an ultra-rare six track USA only mini live LP, both originally released in 1980.
Includes the singles ‘Trouble’ and ‘Found Out Too Late’.
Vocalist Nick Cash has provided in-depth liner notes and we’ve added lyrics and pictures of all relevant singles to make a deluxe package.
Originally formed in 1977 and still going strong to this day with three original members, 999 are a regular and popular attraction on the European Punk circuit.
