Visitors


Another Band I know nothing about and that probably never released a second record. It was recorded at Cargo in Rochdale where a lot of Post Punk Bands recorded like The Fall, Gang Of Four, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft just to mention a few. Visitors are not a typical Post Punk Band, on the "Electric Heat"-EP they sound more like some small town kids (2 brothers and school friends I guess) mixing punk with apre-punk influence - and they have great distorted bass and guitars sounds and a cool cover photo.

"Electric Heat" / "Moth" / "One Line" (Deep Cuts Deep One, 7", 1979)
John McVay - vocals, keyboards / Derek McVay - vocals, bass / Colin Craigie - vocals, guitar / Alan Laing - drums / Recorded at Cargo 16 track Studio, Rochdale 31.3.79 / Produced & mixed by Deep Cuts and Visitors with invaluable assistance from engineer John Brierley / Cover photography by Hilary K Kerr

I saw Visitors in Edinburgh around time of this single. They were from Edinburgh and released about four singles if I recall. They were a good live band with an original punk sound.

They were from Edinburgh, and released two singles. The second was called Compatibility/Poet's End. They also did a couple of John Peel sessions. There's a photo here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/herschell/432567084/
