RSD 2022 release. Mod revivalists the Merton Parkas formed in the anonymous neighbourhood of Merton Park, southwest London, with Danny Talbot on vocals and guitar, brother Mick on keyboards, Neil Hurrell on bass, and future Wedding Present drummer Simon Smith. Discovered by punk journalist Alan Anger, they signed to Beggar's Banquet in 1979 for this riveting debut, which included the top-40 single, 'You Need Wheels,' as well as power-pop 'Plastic Smile' and reggae-influenced 'Give It To Me Now.' This brilliant LP captures the band's dynamic start, emphasising the glory days of their short-lived greatness, before Mick Talbot joined Dexy's Midnight Runners and ultimately formed The Style Council with Paul Weller.
