From liner notes on back cover:
"Hello & welcome to the newest installment of Killed By Death series. There is now so many, who knows for all of them? So we start over with number 1 in an offshoot to pay tribute to all great British D.I.Y. bands from the late 70's & early 80's. Sure everyone to have recordings by SWELL MAPS & TVP'S, but how about the SODS & all the rest of most excellent sounds on this lp? We start off with LONDON PX & their classic handclap singalong 'Orders' from '81. Next are two cuts from the fantastic ep 'Deadbeat Revival' by HORNSEY AT WAR which came out in '79. The PETTICOATS do 'Normal', then it's the MUDHUTTERS with 'Water Torture' off their spazzed out 1979 ep, 'The Declaration'. My mother says they are to sound like Punk version of LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY. It's true! PURITAN GUITARS '£100 In 15 Minutes' from their 1980 handstamped Riverside label. DISCO ZOMBIES did 3 7"ers I know of, all are to kill for. 'Drums Over London" was the 2nd one I found & was in amazing silscreened wraparound sleeve. The SODS end side one with their organ driven classic 'No Pictures' from 1979 on Stortbeat. FUN4 were Scottish & drummer Steven Daly later was to be in ORANGE JUICE. Why is this record dedicated to Simon Weisenthal. To much! Another Stortbeat band SPELLING MISSTEAKS follow with 'Popstar'. Do not confuse them w/New Zealand band of the same name. They are shit. ONE GANG LOGIC ask the question 'Who Killed Sex'? It wasn't me. Maybe you? The ATOMS do the great & goofy 'Beatlejacket'. Now go & get your hair-CUT! The wirdo sounds of 012 are next w/'Fish From Tahiti' which is on the Weird Noise comp on Fuck Off Records. SHOES THIS HIGH were from New Zealand not England but they were great. 'The Nose One' is the best from their ep. Were they British, they would have made many records for Step Forward. It's true! Now go out, buy fish & chips & bottles of lager & crank this the fuck up. Its great! Thanks to Spider for all help."
