Tunnelrunners- Neath Abbey Road CD. Long overdue reissue from this uncompromising band from the UK. The 28-tracks on this CD sound like an exploding punk-rock firecracker. This release rounds up everything the band recorded from late 1977 up until the early 90’s. These guys were known in the UK as the Welsh Ramones. If you haven’t heard them before you’ll be blown away by their songs and the unique vocals of Madoc because they so biting and ultra catchy! Five of these tracks are from the bands first release that came out in 1981 on Sonic International Records. The next five tracks are from the bands second 7” that only 100 copies were pressed and the remaining 18 tracks are ALL unreleased. The Tunnelrunners are a Neath trio formed by Madoc Roberts and Graham Jones in 1977 and who played around the Swansea area between 1978 and 1982 with a short lived reunion in the early 90’s. They’re another one of the unsung heroes of the first wave UK punk scene that sounds like a combination of the Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, the Boys and the Ramones. Quality reissue here with some pretty rare unearthed photos of the band from the late 70’s. Import from the UK.
