Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Radiators From Space was the first punk rock band from Ireland, influencing many of those who followed including the Undertones and the Boomtown Rats, and are often cited by U2 as an inspiration. They were also one of the earliest of the class of '77 punk rock bands. This, their first album, is full-on protest punk, with angry guitars and biting lyrics. At the time Rolling Stone magazine recognized them as "outdistancing most of the competition". The original 13-track album is turned into a 33-track epic. Of the 33 only the album plus three non-album single sides have been available on CD before. The two alternate versions have only ever been available on an Irish cassette compilation. The 15 previously unissued recordings comprise ten 'live in the studio' sides made on the first day of recording and five very live tracks from the band's debut London show at the Vortex Club. All are mastered from new high res transfers.
