Warsaw Pakt

Andy Colquhoun formed Warsaw Pakt with John Manly and Jimmy Coull from The Rockets (23). Wolf Marlander played drums at first, until Lucas Fox joined a few months later. They looked for a bass player for a long time until they found Chris Underhill and played the UK circuit with bands like The Clash and The Damned. Mim Scala got the band a deal with Island Records for Warsaw pakt to record an album 'Needle Time'

In 1977, London’s Warsaw Pakt recorded their album live, straight through, direct to the cutting lathe – no tape master, no overdubs, no mixing. The record was pressed, packed and shipped overnight and was in the record stores the following day, with the band’s fingers still bleeding, Needle Time was released. It sold an impressive 5,000 units almost immediately, but after that the label, inexplicably, refused to press more copies.
