It was way back in 1978, in Northern Ireland, that the DEFECTS first picked up guitars, playing covers of punk classics to their mates. The original line-up consisting of Buck(vocals), Dukie(guitar), Glenn(drums) and Geoff(bass). By 1980 Geoff had been replaced by Gary and with leathers, studs & bristles intact, the band were ready for their assault on the music biz. The band recorded the obligatory demo tape, but the response from English records companies was zero. Enter Dennis MILLIGAN, a friend of the band who offered to split the cost of releasing an EP with the boys.
