Daily Records Vintage Series reissues for the first time on vinyl the second studio LP by Vicious Rumours that was originally released on Link Records in 1987. Vicious Rumours formed in London in 1979, in 1982 they released a three-track demo and started gigging with the most important bands of the punk-oi! scene like Infa-Riot, 4 Skins or The Business.
Their inclussion in such classic compilations as Son Of Oi and Oi! Of Sex in 1983 confirmed them as one of the most promising groups of the second wave of the english streepunk bands. Their next recordings came by the hand of Oi! Records in 1986, as a result two tracks were included in the compilation This Is Oi!! and their long-awaited first studio album titled Anytime Day Or Night! was also released.
From that moment on the most active period of the band starts, they appear on the great compilations Oi! The Resurrection and Sound Of Oi! this time on Link Records, which also produces their second and last album The Sickest Men In Town. Originally released in 1987 features 12 sharp tunes, melodically rich, strong sounding and with tongue-in-cheek lyrics (much in the vein of Peter & The Test Tube Babies).
Also in 1987 they appear on the compilation Oi! Glorious Oi!.Specially remembered is their performance at the festival Oi! The Main Event at the Astoria Theatre (London), in Easter of 1988. Soon later the band dissolves, leaving behind two great albums, like the one we have the pleasure to offer now again on vinyl.
It is time to get your record player spinning again to the rhythm of the magnificents Vicious Rumours, The Sickest Men In Town!!.
