NO FUN - Fall For A Cliche EP (1978)

This is the long out of print first release by the self-proclaimed 'Beatles Of Surrey'. They formed in the mid 70's and were around in some shape or form for about 30 years, making them one of Vancouver's longest running groups. Although they were a part of the original local punk & new wave scene and appeared on the 1979 LP, "Vancouver Complication", they weren't a punk rock band. Still, listen to 'Now I Ain't Got No Face' below and tell me that isn't as punk as anything DOA or The Subhumans ever put out.
They followed up this EP with a couple more 7"s, then released a bunch of cassette-only albums on their own label, Werewolf T-Shirt Records. None of which have ever been re-issued, unfortunately. They were known for putting on themed events like their yearly 'No Fun At Christmas' gig. Singer/guitarist David M performs solo acoustic shows occasionally.
