    Sad. I came across the Swell Maps after hearing Jowe Head on some weird German compilation back, gosh, in 1987.

    They were a very funny, strange underrated band.

    Love your site by the way.

    Thanks Greg. I’ve been intrigued by Swell Maps for a long time but unfortunately never got the chance to get their albums ever. But i’ve enjoyed the smatterings of songs on some compilations, old and new, and the odd mp3s out there, all amazing angular punk rock.

    BTW; I have always loved the names Nikki Sudden & Epic Soundtracks, still sounds much better than Lorry Driver or Howard Pickup (both from the The Adverts).

    Email me your address and I’ll burn you a copy of the album I have. “International Rescue” I believe is the title.
