Along with the Sex Pistols, Clash and the Damned, The Boys were part of the first wave of the mid-1970's UK punk explosion. Armed with an arsenal of killer Casino Steel/Matt Dangerfield songs The Boys became the first UK punk band to sign an album deal in January 1977 and subsequently released two albums, their self-titled debut (1977) and the follow-up Alternative Chartbusters (1978) in quick succession. Highly regarded by the music press and their contemporaries, their well-crafted songs, together with Steel and Dangerfield's layered harmonies, even led to them being described as ‘The Beatles of Punk.' On the 35th anniversary of the original release of Alternative Chartbusters these two classic albums were given a vinyl reissue by Fire Records. Both albums were digitally remastered to the highest quality personally overseen by Dangerfield. Here we have their groundbreaking debut on vinyl!
