Like what we posted for you last week? Hereâ€™s a single from THE DESPERATE BICYCLES that Iâ€™m tempted to call one of the twenty greatest of the quote-unquote punk era, â€œThe Medium Was Tediumâ€ b/w â€œDonâ€™t Back The Frontâ€. It came out near the end of 1977, and was their second 45. It was certainly meant to be a D.I.Y. call to arms, and itâ€™s hard to argue with the sentiment or its raw translation into action. I think Iâ€™m most taken with the squeaky keyboards and the strident, hectoring vocals that still sound smooth and comforting. Youâ€™d follow these guys into the trenches, wouldnâ€™t you? Many did, and left a pretty impressive legacy in & around the UK around this era.
