Started in late 1977 in Darlington, UK, after Con Larkin and his little brother Paul tried their hands at bass and singing respectively, legendary punkers Major Accident were initially influenced by the Pistols and the Clash. They toured the UK extensively before going to the studio, adding more originals to their set as time went on. However, a very sad fate befell their early studio activities: both their first recording session in 1980, which was supposed to be their debut single ('Terrorist Gang' b/w 'War Boots') and the following one, which produced a completely mucked-up, unusable first edition of this LP, remained unreleased for years. It took until late 1982 for their first proper release to see the light of day: produced by Donkeys' guitarist Neil Ferguson, their debut album 'Massacred Melodies' finally came out on Step Forward, supported by a full UK tour with label-mates CHELSEA. The distinctive 'Clockwork Orange' image (they were the first punk band to adopt the look from Kubrick's famous movie, which was banned in the UK at the time and impossible-to-see anywhere) and their songwriting, by far more peculiar than the average UK82 punk band, allowed them to grow a sizeable following, and their classic sleeve artwork by Paul Dillon started appearing on the back of more than a few black leather jackets. Tracklist: 'Schizophrenic', '(Standing On The) Sidelines', 'Last Night', 'Psycho', 'People', 'Terrorist Gang', 'Warboots', 'Mr Nobody', 'Self Appointed Hero', 'That's You', 'Brides Of The Beast', 'Classified Information', 'Middle Class Entertainment', 'Clockwork Toys'.
